Visual Art in Australia does not get enough exposure to the general media.

(Even though patrons to galleries outnumber patrons to all football codes combined)

Unless galleries are close by regional artists and patrons find it difficult to access the art market and gallery scene.

(especially when artists are on low incomes).

There is not enough writing about visual art and the visual arts scene.

(Perhaps Robert Hughes makes us nervous).

The digital world has commodified art and presents it in a less than satisfactory way.

(Digital images cannot fully replicate textures for example).

Yet the Australian Art Scene is vibrant, innovative, funny, expressive, informative and important.

This is a contribution to upset this scheme of things.

    Hello Jessica,
    Are you the illustrator who drew for my Tate publication “Valentine the Purr-fect Kitty”?
    If so please contact me because I am wanting to republish this book since Tate went out of business. I loved your images of my black and white kitty.
    Thanks so much!
