Percolator Gallery is in the heart of Brisbane's Paddington Gallery Precinct.From August 2010 to January 2011 I was beneficiary of a Studio Residency here whilst conducting the Homage to the Seed Residency at nearby Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.  Percolator Gallery has space available to hire for exhibitions and I'm very grateful to Helena Lloyd for creating this possibility for me to return to the Gallery to present this series of classes.

If you click on the flyer you can see all the necessary contact details there and do sen me a note if you'd like to know more.
Its worth noting that this class is designed to appeal to people of all different skills levels and backgrounds.  My particular approach is to encourage taking the time to become sensitised to the variations of colours to be found in the natural world... using mixed media and also magnifiying glasses to observe things more closely... then to work on finding how to create those colour relationships you observe up close... perhaps avoiding habitual ways of working with colour and expanding your sense of possibilities in so doing.

3 dates are available ... if you attend more then one class you'll be encouraged to set up to paint on canvas the next lesson. Further dates will become available so let me know if you think you'd like to  participate and we'll find dates to suit... or if you actually wish to do ongoing classes... even in another location.

Hope to hear from you if you live in this region and would like to know more ... I'm also happy to do retreats in other locations too!

About Me

My photo
Blogging for me is an extension of keeping a journal which I have done in various forms over the decades. The difference being this is not a closed book! I like that it offers an opportunity to explore that which concerns me as an artist and as an individual about living and participating in this vastly complex, unquestionably exciting yet unnerving time in human history. Through the blog I hope to increase the possibilties for cross-pollination which I believe can strengthen the sense of being part of something both personal and universal that is vital, expansive and refreshing.
