I’m having an art show with my mum next week!

Hot on the heels of a very successful Downlands Art Exhibition, Mum and I are having a small, joint exhibition from next Saturday!

We’ll be trying to capture the fun of the Carnival in our paintings, and you’ll see them (and us, and possibly Dad, and maybe my kids because it’ll be school holidays) at the Rep Theatre Gallery on Margaret Street, here in Toowoomba.

For a special preview of the exhibition (and first dibs!), pop by on the afternoon of Friday 16 September, between 2 and 4, and say hello – there may be champagne, I’m just saying.

See you there!

What a Carnival!

What a Carnival!

Have I mentioned I LOVE our Carnival?

And this year saw the realisation of a 10 year dream – to have my artwork featured on the front cover of The Chronicle Carnival of Flowers liftout magazine.

With a little bit of help from my friends (thank you Tammy and Melanie!) I was able to supply art for the cover, and they also wrote a very nice story about me (and Maeby, the studio dog, of course!).

The painting came to life in my studio a couple of months ago – they wanted me to use red, and I knew a face would work… meet Carnival Girl.

They’ve drawn a winner and I’ll be heading into to The Chronicle office¬†to present it next week! I don’t know who it is yet (although a LOT of people have been asking!). Seriously happy to have had this opportunity!

Just a few more pics of how lovely it is here in Toowoomba at this time of year:
