Water Under the Canberry Bridge 2020

Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize 2021 – People’s Choice Award

I have a strong sense of place and a deep love of the Australian countryside and in particular passion for capturing the gentle, romantic light of dusk and dawn using charcoal and graphite.
Canberry is the aboriginal word meaning ‘meeting place’. We know this area today as Canberra.
Winding its way through the heart of the Australian National University, on its way to Lake Burley Griffin is a beautiful little waterway called Sullivan’s Creek. It is a place full of life and abundant with wildlife and energy.

Where there is water, there is a place of meeting. The joining water, wildlife and people.
