These two beauties are going to a new home in Victoria, Australia thanks to Etsy. But you don’t need to miss out. My full range of archival wildflower and landscape prints are on show and for sale at my Open Studio starting on 8th September. Also available, landscape paintings and contemporary art prints.
Bud – that moment when the flower is about to burst. Available on etsy now.
Starts Dessert Pea – one of nature’s curiosities. available on etsy now.
My daughter, Eve Wolfe, a successful emerging artist will also be showing her miniature sculptures along with her tonal drawings.
We will be providing you with a bit of fun and laughter along the way, and maybe even some wonderment as you make your way up our very own little art trail leading to our hilltop studio.
When you have finished why not pop around next door to Charlene O’Brien’s studio to see her eco clothing and couture.
In all there are 24 studios open to the public.

This work is all about being part of a large family. We do not have a family tree but a forest. The forest is populated by the members of my family. With the ‘big boys’, (I still call them that), just behind me. And the younger members of the family forming the tree trunks behind them. Not forgetting mum and dad, who are in there too.
Perhaps at this stage I should do a roll call in order of age. I have to say I always feel a huge sense of pride when I do this. They are: Ken, Eric, Billy, David, Kevin, Ged, Henry and then came the girls: Malvina, Lorretta, Lorraine (me), Rebecca and to finish it all, the baby of the family, Sam.
The face in the foreground is of me when I left home to go to art college and began a new life. The image shows how I am remained connected to my family through the family roots.
The Minnawarra Art Awards showcases some of Australia’s prestigious artists. The exhibition features around 80 works across a variety of mediums of the fine arts including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography and textiles. Curated by Robert Buratti.
Mother & Daughter Moment
This is the first exhibition where my daughter, Eve Wolfe and I have exhibited together. We were amazed to see that the curator had hung our work together on the same panel. Considering there was eighty art works that was a real fluke.
Minnawarra Art Awards is now considered a must see event on the Perth arts calendar.
Saturday 22 April – Sunday 7 May 2017
11am – 4pm daily
Today was a first, with with my artworks showing simultaneously in two separate art exhibitions – both having their official openings at the same time
Perth College Exhibition Opening
I spent an hour at Perth College where I had four artworks on display before rushing off to Newman College where I had another three. Although it was quite stressful fitting them both in, it was also quite exiting.
