Awash, solo exhibition at Soneva Fushi, Maldives

21 December 2022 – 2 Feb 2023

This solo exhibition is the result of my three week residency at Soneva Fushi. I worked with the Soneva Art and Glass team in their hot glass studio using recycled glass from bottles used on the island. It was an amazing project!  Even though I had to hit the ground running as three weeks is a very short time to produce a body of work for exhibition, I was soaking in as much as I could of the environment; the colours of the water and the sky in particular. That combination of softness, of air, of light, of tones and of drama, big skies, fronts rolling over from the horizon was breathtaking. Under water was also another immersive experience as well as the intensity of plant life of the jungle. There was a lot to take inspiration from, and I loved it.

Coming Soon

Interior Landscapes, Craft Victoria, Melbourne

2 February – 4 March 2023

Watson Place, Melbourne, Victoria

This exhibition has been a long time coming and I’m really looking forward to it. Co-curated by Margaret Hancock Davis and Holly Grace, I’m super excited to be showing along side; Jessica Loughlin, Brendan Scott French, Ruth Fatt, Jimmy Donegan, Kirstie Rea and Holly Grace, all of whom have spent most of their artistic lives investigating relationship to land and country and developing the language of glass for personal expression. This is part one of a bigger exhibition that will be presented at the Ebletoft Museum in Denmark in 2024.
