A Coastal Lifestyle
The exhibition was themed around the coastal lifestyle of Queensland's Sunshine and Moreton Bay coastal areas near  Brisbane.  It focused on the connection that people have with the flora and fauna, expressed through a variety of works including sculpture, photography and painting.

Canoe Tree  2009 This is a significant tree to the aboriginal heritage  and has been included in the Queensland State Heritage Register.  The inner scar can be seen to have been made by a chopping implement.  The shape of the scar indicates that the bark of this tree could have been used by the aborigines to make a canoe.  Reference: (2003) L Hackett

'Spirit'    This painting was inspired by a Mangrove tree I discovered on Macleay Island.  The tree sits all alone in the ocean and has a special aura about it.

Untitled - Wave at Cartright Point It's easy to get very close to the pounding waves near the rocks and I felt the full force of nature there!
