I am pleased to announce that my painting of Green Rosellas has just been announced (3/12/2017) as the winner of the Peoples Choice award at the Holmes Prize for realistic Australian Bird artwork at the Caloundra Regional Gallery Queensland.
Pictured here: Tim Faulkner General Manager Aussie Ark Sanctuary and Australian Reptile Park and I and my donated original painting “The Devil you Know”. Last night I had the pleasure of attending the 2017 Devil Ark Gala dinner. What an impressive night of fundraising not only for Devil Ark but also introducing the new Aussie Ark Sanctuary which is to be constructed alongside Devil Ark in the Barrington Tops of NSW.

2017 has been a very successful year for me Internationally and at home. Again this year two paintings of mine have been selected by an International Jury to appear in the 2017 Artists for Conservation virtual exhibition and both selected to appear in the annual AFC book. These paintings were : “Overnight Parking” Red Tailed Black Cockatoos and “ Life at Best” Emerald Dove.
