Host Hullabaloo


I am proud to have a Gallery featured in HOST HULLABALOO!,
celebrating the hosts of RedBubble. This 4th annual event
is produced and sponsored by the Solo Exhibition group.

Visiting the host galleries at Host Hullabaloo is a great way to support participating hosts, who also support your work with their volunteered time and features. Thank you! If you’re not a member of the group, you are invited to visit the public show and comment here, in this journal.

Well today I am feeling very chuffed. The exhibition opened last night. Lots of very nice feedback, lots of how nice, “I thought they were water colours” even one couple arguing over if they were photos or water colours.

The best however is the fact that I have sold four works, hooray, part of the rather expensive process of printing, framing, invitations has been recouped.



Thank you to the kind person that bought 4 cards today. That has made my day.

PS the 4 cards.


Well it’s official.

In todays mail there was the invitation to my Exhibition in the Melbourne Sofitel Atrium Gallery. The exhibition, called Suburban Botanicals, will run from 8th of November to the 30th of January with an opening night on Tuesday December the 11th 6-8pm. If you live in Melbourne and want to come along then do so, just let Michael Baldwin on 9635 7738 know before December the 6th.

The opening will also feature another photographer, Trevor Mein, his works being exhibited in Sofia’s lounge. Bear in mind that Trevor is a recognised photographer and as such most of the opening speech will be about his work.

However I am extremely chuffed that Donald Williams from Global Art Projects thought my work was worth exhibiting and I hope to see you there.
