Hello <<First Name>>
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very many Blessings of the Season - Love, Joy, Hope, Peace, Rest. And to thank you for your continuous support throughout the year! There is much planned for 2015 so I hope you'll stay on board, and maybe I'll be able to catch up with you at some of the many art happenings.
What's New & Exhibitions
- Preparations are underway for my SOLO EXHIBITION at Lasting Impressions Gallery, Kenilworth opening on March 1. A Victorian glass artist, Amanda Louden will be showing in one of the front galleries at the same time. Her etched glass forms were very successful last year. My show will be a mix of acrylic works as well as oils/cold wax works. I think our works will complement eachother well.

I will be thinking further about workshops in the early new year, now that exhibitions have been locked in. Most will be held in THE EDGE STUDIO,
Chatsworth (my place) but I'll let you know as soon as I figure out dates. Some will be held on the Sunshine Coast, for those people who are interested.
It's not all about me ...
Naomi is an emerging artist (from the Sunshine Coast) with a passionate interest in intuitive drawing, reverencing and referencing aspects of nature, more especially trees and banksias. Her creativity, conceptual thinking and exquisite mark-making are especially inspiring to me. I'm sure you'll be impressed, as I am.
You can check out her Facebook Page
for more of her exciting work.
'See' ya'll next year!
