Unseen Exhibition

Delve into the UNSEEN with me tonight. 

This photographic exhibition is not to be missed!

I am very excited about my exhibition opening tonight night!. My partner and I have been working really hard on an interactive installation. It’s a musical instrument with visual effects. I don’t want to give too much away but one thing I can tell you is that you need to put on special glasses to see the UNSEEN. Here is a sneak peak of the master piece.

Radio Interview!!!

I am looking forward to my radio interview on Saturday with 92.9 River FM! I will be on the air from 12.30pm. I will be talking about my exhibition and my project that I am launching, “Unseen”. This project is about people who have hidden disabilities or barriers that they deal with on a daily basis.

“Unseen”  brings awareness to the broader community about these sorts of issues. Be sure to tune in! If you are not in the Lismore area you can log onto http://2ncr.org.au and click on ‘stream’ to hear me live.

 

Finalist in Lethbridge Small Scale Award

It is a great honour to announce that I have been named, for the second year in a row, as a finalist in the Lethbridge 10000 Small Scale Art Award. This is an international award and it is an amazing feeling to have my work recognized at this level.

Stay tuned and I will keep you posted on the exhibition.

‘Unseen': An Exhibition and Community Project

I am very excited to announce the ‘Unseen’ project and would love for you to come and see it or participate in one of the workshops. Unseen is about life with unseen disabilities and hopes to raise awareness as well as inspire and empower others to explore creativity as a form of escapism and self-recognition.

I have started this project as I have been diagnosed with quite a few different disabilities over the years and know what it is like to deal with unseen difficulties.

In 2008 I started my photography diploma and discovered a whole new world to immerse myself in. I use my photography as a way to escape all the craziness of life and the challenges that living with disabilities can bring. The exhibition offers a journey through my photography and my life as I have dealt with various challenges.

My partner and I have been very busy and having a lot of fun building an interactive installation based on the Unseen concept. The installation is as much art as it is a musical instrument and a technological novelty. The audience is required to wear special glasses in order to see what was previously hidden, and through a tactile touch system they are able to explore and create within the world of the Unseen.

The concept behind this installation is to impart the idea that….

“to see the unseen sometimes you need to look through a different lens”

Come along and have some fun and delve into the Unseen.

I hope to see you there.

Back at Work

Great first day back at work today.

My client is an amazing young lady with a lot of passion and natural talent.

Last year she excelled so much that we are now starting to plan an exhibition of her work in local galleries around the North Coast.

We had so much fun today. Part of what we did was to experiment with my I pad using the photo settings. She loved it.

Here are some photos from today that she took.

2014 was a very exciting year.

2014 was a very exciting year for me. I was named as a finalists in the Lethbridge and Clayton UTZ Art Awards with two of my works. It was an honour to be recognised at this level.

I also started a photography mentoring service for people with disabilities. You could not ask for anything more rewarding than a job where you are teaching your passion to such amazing people.

I also received confirmation for a solo exhibition this year in May which will be held at the Northern Rivers Community Gallery in Ballina. I am looking forward to this and will keep you updated on my progress.

Here are just a few photos from a session with a client last year.
