Selected to be in the PLANTS Exhibition of the Royal Botanic Garden

One of my favourite places in Sydney is the Royal Botanic Garden. Perched on the edge of Sydney Harbour, it’s a stunning place that’s ideal for a picnic, Shakespeare in the Park or a stroll through the beautiful gardens.

So I’m honoured that two of my artworks have been selected to feature in the PLANTS exhibition.

When: Saturday 25 July – Sunday 2 August, 10 am – 4 pm
Price: Entry is free
Lion Gate Lodge Garden
The Royal Botanic Garden
Mrs Macquaries Road, Sydney

I hope you enjoy the exhibition!

On display and available for purchase are:

Gatsby in the Tropics

Gatsby in the Tropics is inspired by the glamour of yesteryear. Think gin and tonics on the verandah during balmy evening soirees, a piano tinkling in the background. Fringed sequinned dresses and dapper suits indulging in canapés and cocktails in the midst of tropical decadence.


Nostalgia is about bringing the best of the past to infuse beauty into the present. With echoes of vintage chinoiserie, it is inspired by the stories that feature on Parisian dressing screens created in a unique block printing style with a modern twist.
