Such a privilege to have one of my Monaro images on front cover of good friend Charles Massy's new groundbreaking book 'Call of the Reed Warbler' which is such an inspiring read and has been reprinted many times since its recent publication. Look for talk at a writers festival or other venue by the author who is in strong demand as public speaker.

Published by University of Queensland Press.


Looking forward to getting into writing book for National Library of Australia starting over summer when I will be staying put at Bobundara with only these two distractions:


ADFAS (Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society) lecture at Armidale Wednesday February 6, 2019.

Speaking at Jugiong Writer's Festival Saturday 23rd March.


Mediterranean Meanderings talk and lunch at Mickey and Larry Robertson's Glenmore House earlier this year was such fun and Mickey put on a sensational Mediterranean spread for lunch...enjoyed so much catching up with everyone there - one who had flown up the evening before from Melbourne, stayed overnight at the airport then driven down and back for the humbling to have such great enthusiasm...thanks Mickey for making this all possible...


Two ADFAS (Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society) Lectures in Melbourne during year: Contemporary Landscapes -  illustrated lecture which looked at some of the most innovative and inspiring landscape designs in the world - from the Greek Islands, to Italy, through to France, South America and throughout Australia - large gardens that cover an entire island to intimate town gardens, cutting edge gardens from some of the world’s leading landscape designers and garden makers. 


Had the very great pleasure of having the Plant Hunter, Georgina Reid and photographer Daniel Shipp to stay here at Bobundara for a few days while on the scout from Melbourne back to Sydney…and  chuffed to be included in Georgina's book being published by Thames and Hudson - keep an eye out for it as will be wonderful am sure!
