APRIL 2015 'Anzac Spirit' Mural
The day has come where I can now post a picture of the 'Anzac Spirit' Mural that I have been working towards since last year, alongside project managers Creative Move (Brisbane). The Artwork spans a three-story feature wall in the Wavell State High School’s new junior secondary building and has several components to it including bronze laser cut elements and memorabilia boxes.The Department of Veteran Affairs awarded Wavell State High School a grant to assist in the development this mural, and we also got to work with the members of the local Kedron Wavell RSL, while a team of talented painted transferred my digital design on to the wall.

An extract from the artist statement about the ‘ANZAC Spirit’ mural:
The Wavell State High School ‘ANZAC Spirit' mural endeavors to encapsulate the bravery and determination that our ANZAC troops have demonstrated since their inception. The mural consists of historical images ranging from World War 1 to the contemporary soldier from Afghanistan. Many poignant symbols used in the mural, such as the red poppy, the rising sun, and the silhouette of the soldier, are familiar to the public. Other key symbols, colours, and text have been used to represent the namesake of the school, Field Marshal Earl Wavell (1883–1950), and the relevant school houses, Keren, Alamein, Burma, and Tobruk, which were key battles that Wavell fought with ANZAC troops during World War 2.

SARINA FESTIVAL September 2015 "On the Fringe - Belonging" workshops and finale.
Donna Maree Robinson, Wanda Bennett and myself have been selected to run workshops with local schools using stop motion techniques and lantern making. The outcome for this is that we will provide the main attraction on the evening of the festival. This will include a lantern parade and large scale projections - looking forward to this project! This project was funded by the local RADF.
