end of residency exhibition
In March-June 2018 I did a three month residency at Santa Carla in Brunswick. At the end of the residency I promised a new greeting card range titled Amusing Musings and a children's book I had collaborated on with Michael Irving called Ben Nana. See below for images from the exhibition opening.
Famous Fluffy Moments
Ever wonder what your cat gets up to when you're not around?
The Fluff's first solo exhibition in July 2013, at Entrepot Gallery, Tasmania, was re-imagined, re-invented and re-designed when The Fluff had its second solo exhibition at Santa Carla, Brunswick in July 2017.
The intent of this body of work was to further develop a previously formed character: The Fluff. This cat has matured and evolved since its birth in 2006 to what you see here.
Each work captured a moment where The Fluff was in the throes of just being itself, which incidentally happened to be essentially recreating highlights from famous movies/legends or folklore.
The Fluff is one and all cats alike. Androgynous and asexual in nature. It is your typical cat, but also incomparable to other cats.

Prints are available at Santa Carla, Brunswick and Madlegs & Friends, Balwyn North.
Maneki Neko in Preston has a framed original in their gallery.
The Forgetting Curve
The Forgetting Curve was a collaboration with Jackson Rogers (@forgettingcurve) funded by Kingston Arts, which culminated in a multimedia exhibition. Rogers interviewed residents of their childhood experiences from the Kingston area of Melbourne, and mixed their stories with matching melodies inline with the theme of a podcast he had previously worked on (search for 'forgetting curve' in your podcast player). He approached me to illustrate the scenes and combine them with the residents stories to create a 60 minute animation.
