Roll the presses!

Have received the final proof of the book, THIS IS OUR TOWN, and the presses are rolling. It looks great, very happy.

With terrific design work by John Kingsmill and a lovely introduction by Mark Thomson we have produced something to be proud of.

For those who are interested, it will be available for sale very soon.




I often say on this blog, “Watch this space”. Well, it’s finally happening.

My book, This is our town, will be launched by former South Australian Governor Kevin Scarce AC CSC RAN (Rtd), at the SA Migration Museum in Adelaide on Thursday August 8.

The associated exhibition, Portraits of Elizabeth: Migration, Community and Identity, will run at the SA Migration Museum from 1 August to 29 September 2019 as part of SA’s Living Artists Festival.

After five years on this project, all very exciting!

Signing prints ready for framing. Unusually for me, I will be showing some large (A1 and A2) prints. In fact I’ve never exhibited prints this large before. Nice!
