Very pleased to be a Finalist again in the 2015 Olive Cotton Award at the Tweed River Gallery with my portrait of Niamh. I was a fan of the pioneering photographer Olive Cotton, and have a bit of a soft spot for this particular Award.

My brilliant artist friend David O’Brien painted Robert Forester from The Go-Betweens for this year’s Archibald. I thought it was bloody great, but the judging panel weren’t so open minded. Major lapse in judgement!
