Quite a few years back I painted The Gift and I loved it so much I thought it deserved a revisit. Although this piece is different the sentiment is the same, made more special by the fact my daughter is the model. We often do photo shoots for my paintings and she is not what you'd call a willing participant! However every now and again I manage to capture her off guard and this is one of those moments.

In 2018 I undertook my first Artist Residency which involved painting a mural in the streets of Lakkos, the historic old town of Heraklion, Crete. 2019 saw three of my artworks being featured in the TV series The Block and and I undertook another artist residency – this time in the beautiful French village of Fontaine-Daniel.
