“Creation” – SALA 2019 exhibition at Hentley Farm Winery Cellar Door

This SALA (South Australian Living Artists) festival I have an Exhibition at Hentley Farm Winery.

Called “Creation”, it is the body of work produce during my collaboration with Hentley Farm Wines via Adelaide Central School of Art to design an Art work for their limited release “The Creation” Shiraz (2017)

Working on this project involved several months of immersion at “F Block” where the grapes were grown for this 2017 very special shiraz.

I made a number of iPad ‘drawings’, measuring the changes over time in the landscape and the vines. The final label design grew out of these works, expressing the unique qualities of “F Block”.

The exhibition continues throughout August 2019, 11am – 5pm daily at Hentley Farm Cellar door, Corner Gerald Roberts and Jenke Roads, Seppeltsfield. Work is for sale, you can enquire via this blog, or details provided on the floor sheet at the exhibition.

iPad drawing workshop at Adelaide Central School of Art

Are you interested in using your iPad to draw? I will be running a two day workshop at the well respected Adelaide Central School of Art on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th of January 2018. Enrol here.

The first day will be spent going through the basics of the Brushes XP app (these skills are transferable to just about any other drawing app) and the second day will be for developing your own projects – or you can work on ideas that I will give you.

I’d love to see you there – it will be fun and relaxed, and you will learn a new drawing tool!

The workshop is suitable for people who have no prior iPad drawing experience.

Mural in North Adelaide

“Living the Life – in North Adelaide” – Mural design with imposed palette (iPad finger drawings collaged)

I’ve been lucky enough to be one of five artists to have my mural design selected to be part of a mural painting competition on Friday 27th November.

We have one day only to paint our work on a 10 metre stretch of fence on O’Connell street, North Adelaide.

I’ve never made a mural before and I’m really excited about the opportunity to fill such a large space with my work.

The criteria were quite strict – we could only use the nine colours supplied, so I reworked some of my previous iPad drawings and made a few more using the specified colours, then smashed them all together to come up with the above design – all made on an iPad. I hope the design reflects the diverse people who live, work, study and visit our beautiful North Adelaide, surrounded by park and very “Adelaide” structures such as St Peters Cathedral and the Adelaide Oval – with Mt Lofty in the background!

It will be a very long and tiring day but we will be helped along by entertainment, food and wine from 4-8pm. People will be asked to vote on site and online – come along and say hello if you’re in Adelaide, and vote for your favourite.

See Last Friday in North Adelaide for details.
