My upcoming exhibition “Surrounded By Nature” will be held at John Mullins Memorial Art Gallery, Miles, from 3rd September – 28th October 2022. This will be a collection of 41 Original Artworks and 15 Limited Edition Prints depicting Australian animals and landscapes.
I wanted to create an exclusive range of artworks that would be visually striking and totally different from my standard white collection of artworks.
These artworks would have much more detail and pop from the background. They are presented in a nice black Peter board matt, surrounded by a metallic and timber frame, sitting behind UltraVue UV70 Anti-Reflective Glass.
The black label collection will never be reproduced as a greeting card, postcard or fridge magnets like my white collection of artworks. Only a select few artworks will be made into limited edition prints with a single print run of 30 prints.
I wanted a different look than a standard white matt for my white collection of artworks so I talked with the framer and decided on a float mount. This raises the artwork from the background and when lit from above, casts a nice looking shadow that enhances the deckled edge of the Arches watercolour paper.
These artworks are professionally framed at Arts Plus in Bundaberg using quality timber, and Peter board
Something special for the opening night of my exhibition will be a silent auction of an original artworks.
The butterfly is painted on Stonehenge paper with a deckled edge, float mounted and beautifully framed in wood with gold insert, which complements the Cruise Butterfly nicely. This is then protected by Ultra Vue UV70 Anti – reflective glass.
Available on, 2nd September 2022.
Title: Cruiser Butterfly
Framed: 25 x 25cm

These “Black Label Collection” limited edition prints are a copy of an original artwork that I have recently painted in gouache. They will have a single print run of 30 Limited Edition Prints, and 1 Artist Proof of some designs for display purposes only.
Each limited edition print will be individually numbered and signed by myself the artist and displayed in a cello pouch to eliminate dust and have a single sheet of cardboard for rigidity.
No other prints will be created of my “Black Label Collection” in any other formats eg: greeting cards – postcards – calendars, unlike my “White Collection” of limited edition prints.
I have decided to keep this wonderful family of swans together and sell the prints and originals as a triptych (Three artworks displayed together).
3x Limited Edition Prints AUD $125
My “White Collection” limited edition prints will only have a single run of 50 prints, each will be numbered and signed. These artworks are not as exclusive as the Black Label Collection because they have a larger print run and some artworks also have prints made into postcards – greeting cards – bookmarks.
Printed on the same Knight Linen Textured acid free board as the black label collection.
