August 18 -20th Noosa Open Studios weekend. I was one of some 50 local artists to open their studios and it was a very busy three days with lots of visitors. We had 40 on Friday, over 70 on Saturday and 36 on Sunday. Thanks to the incredible work of Trish Bradford, Gabi Dick, Sarah Terese and the rest of the committee, the weekend went off without a hitch and I sold 4 paintings on the weekend and a further 4 the weekend after.

I absolutely loved the time spent there. Thanks to Wal for showing us round the gardens and a special thanks to Greg for giving me that day to go explore MONA. Thanks to Tattoed Tim from MONA.

2015 Dec to Jan 2016 Travelled to Europe. Hired a car in Dover and did a lovely, if slightly nerve racking tour of Devon and Cornwell and Yorkshire ending up in Edinburgh and met up with the family. Spent some time in marvellous London, visited the TATE Modern, National Gallery and the Saatchi Gallery. Trained it to Bruges  for Christmas and ended up in Berlin for New Years Eve. We spent a marvellous day exploring the gardens of The EDEN PROJECT in Cornwall.

Highlights of the trip was the visit to Pinakothek Der Moderne in Munich to see first hand the work of Der Blaue Reiter painters: Kandinsky, Munter, Klee and Marc whose work I remember seeing on the wall of my primary school classroom. Also German Expressionists work such as Otto Dix, George Grosz, Kanoldt and a splendid room full of Max Beckman's work. There was also some work by Joseph Beuys and a solitary, and not really exciting Anslem Kiefer.

 Also in Munich I was lucky enough to see a wonderfully crazy multimedia showcase of 140 Jean Paul Gaultier's avantgarde haute couture designs.

Other highlights were the Islamic Art Museum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia which is supported by the Charles Sturt University and has a fascinating collection of Islamic art and artifacts.
