2022 – Works on art board- gouache

At times, I like a crowded space- as though the picture plane is enveloping me like a blanket. Other times I pull it all apart and leave only the essential…

ALL WELCOME for drinks… Saturday 4 JUNE, 4-6pm; Flinders Street Gallery, 61 Flinders Street, Surryhills, NSW, Australia
