There has also been lots of activity in our Wednesday class with one of the group, Jan McGiffen,  preparing for her first solo exhibition at Lennox Arts Collective – the opening night is 1st September so do come along to celebrate with her and view her work.

I was asked by the Bean Bank Cafe in River St, Ballina if I could put some of my work in there, so I think it has brightened up the space – I do like colour!

The Overseas Art Retreats to England and France in 2018 are filling up! I have one place left for London and Cornwall and three for Paris and Provence, so if you are interested, now is the time to book more information at this link.

In 2018 I will also be running two local art retreats (you can see what they are like on the links) –  at my home studio in Lennox Head for a weekend in March – dates to be confirmed and at Two Figs Retreat near Nimbin from 17th – 20th August
