Exhibiting artwork is an opportunity to create a body of work connected to a specific theme.

Water Lines II
Group exhibition – 1st April – 1st May 2016, CStudios Gallery, Newcastle

Music From A Farther Room
Group exhibition – Gosford Regional Gallery, 2009
A group exhibition, which evolved over a two-year period in conjunction with Gosford Regional Gallery. The exhibition investigates many different perspectives of ageing and the relationship between youth and age.
