September 16-October 4 2014 Flinders Lane Gallery
I have been represented by Flinders Lane Gallery since 2000 and I have held 7 highly successful solo shows there ( 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011,2013)  as well as numerous group exhibitions over the past 14 years. Each of the gallery artists have been asked to exhibit a work which pays homage to Melbourne or reflects their experience of Melbourne in some way.

"Living in Dubai my thoughts and memories of Australia are quiet heightened ...
In choosing an image of Melbourne for this anniversary show , I recollected my strong visual memories of Melbourne, with Shrine Avenue Pines always a strong image . 
For many years I rode my bike from Elwood across the city to my studio, often riding home late at night past The Shrine . The dramatic lighting , silhouetted pines , the night sky lit up by the city lights , contrasted with pockets of darkness from the gardens , and the illuminated shrine memorial was always a very moving image that had stayed with me ."
