Artbank Collection

Artbanks recent road tour to WA gave me the opportunity to present my practice to the Curators they selected Sugar Loaf Road to collect. Sugar Loaf Road was one of the artworks from my exhibition at Sagra Art Gallery in Melbourne last year titled Reckless Romantics opened by Dr Chris McAuliffe pictured below in front of the painting. It depicts an area inland of the Tuross River NSW probably the end of the Blue Mountains where my husbands father Peter Darvall has rudimentary rock huts near an old gold mining village called Utopia this area and its stories became the basis for the exhibition and my investigation in our passion for the mountainous Australian Bush.
