Exhibiting Myself

Now that Christmas is over we can all start to think about January, can't we?

Here's your chance to see a selection of my older paintings in a jolly splendid location; two-hour scenic drive from Hobart, lawns, Highland cattle, ducks and an excellent cafe. Oh, and power stations too, if you're into that sort of thing.

I'm moving to Tarraleah for January to take up my new career as a Tourist Attraction, otherwise known as Artist in Residence. This involves painting industriously all day and being nice to any tourists who happen to stop by to watch or to look at the exhibition of paintings I delivered to their brand-new gallery this morning.

Come for a drive and drop in to see me - and my paintings. You can watch me working away at a brand-new picture, and find out all my little painting secrets.

I will still be back in Hobart on Mondays and Tuesdays to teach regular art classes, and to give private tuition.

Painting Classes

There are two places left for my Extra Five short course of five lessons at Nolan Art School, Salamanca Arts Centre, beginning 17 January. All levels, all mediums, drawing or painting; chaos guaranteed. Contact Betty Nolan to enrol. More information.

This is the church, which will be our painting studio for the Oil Painting workshop at Tarraleah.

The month ends with an oil painting weekend at Tarraleah, 28-29 January - two days of painting tuition in a jolly splendid location, with accommodation, meals and painting materials supplied.  There are only ten places in the class - contact Tarraleah Events to book. More information.

So, until then - wishing you all a Happy New Year and hope tonight's festivities are just super.
