The Deadwood Collection
The Deadwood exhibition observes the beauty, artistry and inspiration present in bare, dead and dying trees. Rich with life. Homes for wildlife. Food for the forest. They are essential to biodiversity, the health of the earth and animal habitats, providing safety, security and comfort.
Never really dead they are becoming something else.
Over the centuries, fairy tales, beasts and mythical creatures have been borne of the dying forest. They fertilise our imaginations, conjuring towering, animated beings that aid and abet, obstruct and hinder.
Tasmania’s Huon Valley is full of the bleached bones of these towering sentinels and provided a rich source of inspiration for this series.

Limited Edition Collection
Printed on museum quality cotton rag and archival inks, these signed limited editions will last A lifetime
Chasing golden butterflies and dreams as they thread their way through the rainforest. A guiding light in the darkness, trusting the way forward. Do not fear the journey towards the unknown. Adventure awaits…
This lone redhead in a sweeping red dress warms her hands at the fire. The journey is long and lonely for now, but the quest belongs exclusively to her, shaping her future and the fate of many. Is she part of the story of the Bloodstained horse?
Like fingers that reach, like knuckles and silvery claws. Beautiful and intricate. Dark and deep. These lines speak. These forms, beautifully reveal growth, striving. Life and development.
A majestic stag is called forth from a piece of driftwood floating in emerald waters. The colour and detail in this emage evolves as you go deeper. The closer you get and the longer you look.
