Last year Dr. Nien Schwarz, senior lecturer at ECU had visited my exhibition 'Walking the Pipeline to the Water's End' and she was excited with the collection that she saw. I invited Nien to visit me at the studio and look at the work for the new show in the hope that she'd like to write some words in response. I was thrilled that she took that time to spend with me and create such an eloquent piece of text. Nien quotes 'I enjoyed writing about your project. I swam alongside your paintings for many delicious hours'.
