Artwork Statement

I first met Jenny Dowell at one of my exhibition openings over five years ago. Jenny has attended a few more of my exhibitions over the years, and at last year’s exhibition opening, as the newly appointed Mayor.
Even though she probably wasn’t really feeling up to it, she was still there in full support of my work. I placed the daffodils in the painting as a symbol of this health battle that Jenny faced which came along with her Mayorship.
To this day I still see Mayor Jenny Dowell often around Lismore and at events, a huge campaigner for social causes. Considering she is the Mayor, Jenny Dowell is accessible and approachable and is just such a lovely lady who is always up for a chat. She is a real supporter of the arts and personally has been a great supporter of my artwork, which I really appreciate.
