I am pleased to announce that my painting titled “Sanctuary” Green Rosella’s has won BEST in SHOW at the 2018 ARTISTS FOR CONSERVATION exhibition in Vancouver Canada. Both my entries (“Times like This” Kookaburra)  also won Medals of Excellence. I travelled to Canada to receive these awards and had the pleasure to meet up with so many great artists and the very welcoming team at AFC,

2018 has been a very successful year for me Internationally and at home.

Both paintings won MEDALS of EXCELLENCE and “Sanctuary” won BEST IN SHOW. My recent painting “Hidden Paradise” King Parrots was selected as a FINALIST in the 2018 International Artists Magazine Wildlife art Challenge. Exhibitions with Kevin Hills Australian Top Ten Artists have been very successful along with the annual Romantics exhibition Hunters Hill Sydney. Commissions still are a large part of my yearly routine.
