I am lucky to be working on some pieces for a show at the beautiful Regional Gallery; Suki and Hugh in Bungendore. The work is looking through nature and language as the catalyst for the work. Experimenting with neon is also allowing me to explore electricity in nature.

Queanbeyan-Palerang Arts Trail open studio
Our studio will be open from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 30 October as part of The Queanbeyan-Palerang Arts Trail.
The Art Trail provides an ideal opportunity for local artists to showcase their work, and for visitors to see first-hand something of the unique creative process that goes into creating works of art and craft. It also provides a wonderful way to meet the artists, tour the studios, watch demonstrations and add to your private collection with original artwork available for sale.
In 2003, Matt and Harry established their studio (affectionately known as Curtistan) in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, where they live with their two sons, Hugo and Oscar and a few furry and feathered friends.
