After 12 years and many happy memories , Sea Silks Gallery has closed. The shop sold and the new owners are putting their own business into the space.

I was thrilled to win the State Of The Art Photography competition run by the Bateman Foundation and gallery in Victoria , Canada.
A Portrait Of A Lionfish was selected for this year’s AFC Annual exhibition in Vancouver , Canada , September 2021. It will then travel to Tucson , Arizonia at the end of January 2022.
2021 was off to a slow start for Author Visits to schools due to covid restrictions however I did visit Main Arm Upper Public School in late May. The school is a beautiful 3 teacher school set in the foothills behind Mullumbimby in Northern NSW.
