Cairns

I escaped the cold winter briefly and headed to sunny North Queensland to visit family. While in town I was commissioned to do a large wall I had discussed with the owner a couple of years ago when I painted the stairwell. I explored several design concepts each using an illusion element and the owner chose the “funky” one. It was great to see this mural come to fruition and able to put the time in the wall deserved.

During this trip I delivered a canvas to its new home and as always no visit to cairns is complete without a paint session and a cold beverage with the talented and friendly locals, Mint & Wal.

Boulia

It was my first trip to Boulia and what an adventure! After recent rain the flora and fauna of Outback Queensland was not like I’d seen in years. I completed two large murals at Boulia State School. Thanks to the school staff and community for making me feel welcome and the students who shared their experiences and cultural heritage.

This project wrapped up my second tour of Queensland this year and The only thing I won’t miss are the flies!

Longreach

Over the years I have been a part of a variety Youth Week projects in Longreach with great outcomes and this year was no exception. The Garden of Youth engaged my expertise to assist them to paint a mural at the community garden. It’s great to see the space being utilised and gardening is something I enjoy when I’m not painting so it was awesome work with a likeminded team and learn a few tips myself. I also took on a commission to revamp Eagle Street Pizza while in town.

Wynnum

It was great to colab with a few artists to freshen up the Moreton Bay Girl Guide hut at Wynnum. Thanks goes out to the Girl Guides who gave us the opportunity to return about 12 years after we completed the original project. I was with good company with experienced artists Rems, Kasino, Skonz and Kradl.
