I’ve heard people say artwork can take on a life of its own…  well now I believe it.

Not having been able to make new work for a few years now, somehow my arty life has managed to have fun for both of us. Now, with my Portrait prints of Lynn Savery having crept out of the studio for a recent group show at Steps gallery, and the few remaining Winter Light paintings returning from their Parisian adventures, my artwork has found itself hanging at the wondrous Convent Gallery in Daylesford. And, they’re in such grand company too, hanging with David and Arthur Boyd, the beautiful Bill Ogilvie sculptures, and shortly also with John Olsen and Tim Storrier.

The show will be on for the next eight weeks… it truly is early Spring for me this year!

Tina Banitska is a gorgeous, a most inspiring and supportive human being. I cannot thank her enough for the encouragement she’s given me through my toughest years.

For those of you who don’t know about TheConvent gallery Daylesford, please read on and make a mental note to visit:

(Excerpt from wikipedia)

 It was sold in 1988, needing a great deal of repair and restoration. It was sold to Tina Banitska, a well-known local artist and ceramicist.

The building retains many of its Victorian architectural features, and is located on the slope of Wombat Hill overlooking the Central Highlands twin towns of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs.

The Convent now houses eight individual galleries, featuring new local and international artists every 8 weeks, the original restored chapel, a museum with the history of the building set up by the nuns themselves, retail selling one-off clothing and jewellery pieces, pottery, local wines and produce, a Mediterranean style cafe`, New York style penthouse apartment, two glass fronted architecturally designed function rooms, Daylesford’s first world class wine bar, breathtaking views and 6 acres (24,000 m2) of picturesque gardens.
