The Year of the Bird exhibition, curated by Caelli Jo Brooker and Helen Hopcroft, opened on Saturday 23 February 2013 at Maitland Regional Gallery in Maitland, NSW. It is a group exhibition that explores bird imagery in art and features some of my work, as well as the work of fellow paper cutter Pamela See and many other talented artists.

I am really excited and honoured to have my work, Theodora (pictured) included in this huge and exciting exhibition in Manchester, UK.
This wide-ranging survey of the practice of paper cutting also includes the amazing work of some of my favourites, including Kara Walker, Mia Pearlman, Béatrice Coron, Peter Callesen and Rob Ryan.
After Manchester, the show continues to two more venues later in 2013 – I’ll keep you updated as the show moves around.
Details of the exhibition, catalogue and other resources can be found here.
I have work in a group exhibition of international paper cutting artists at NG Art in Sydney which opens tomorrow, 20 march 2012. It includes the work of some of my favourite paper artists, including Ingrid Siliakus (Netherlands) and Hina Aoyama (Japan).
Details are here.
I have two new works in a group exhibition at John Buckley Gallery called “Conversations” which is on over the summer until 11 February 2012.
The exhibition includes works from Su Baker, Lesley Dumbrell, Jennifer Goodman, Katherine Hattam, Christine Healy and Hilarie Mais.
I’m a bit excited about my work “Theodora” which despite only being 64x64cm, took months to complete (and countless blades). A real labour of love reminiscent of the handiwork crafted by the women left behind as their sailor men travelled the world looking for fame and glory.

I am very pleased to announce that I am now represented by Tim Olsen Gallery in Sydney!
Tim Olsen Gallery is a gorgeous gallery in Woollahra and I am looking forward to my first exhibition with them in 2012.
Meanwhile I have work in the stockroom so Sydneysiders can pop in and see my work up close.
I am so excited about the new range of jewellery that I have designed for über cool design company Polli.
The pieces are designed as talismans or mementoes that sailors might leave with their loved ones, or bring home to them, during the long, arduous and dangerous sea exploration journeys that were undertaken by the likes of Abel Tasman, Captain Cook and Francis Drake. These journeys were taken with fortune and glory in mind, in search of an undiscovered paradise which was believed to exist just beyond the boundary of the world as known to Europeans. We know the consequences of these voyages were far more complex and far less triumphant than the sailors envisaged. But the discovery of the wonders of these beautiful places, so exotic to European eyes, was the dawning of a gradual and imperfect understanding of the world we all live in.
You can see the Polli blog post about it, with links to the designs, here.
