September 20, 2018 - Street Art in Art Centre



Fremantle Art Centre paste-ups of Rose and Robin.  In the 1860’s the Fremantle Art Centre was then a lunatic asylum where women and children (as young as 9) were locked up for being considered socially deviant; not being sound of mind; having a child out of welock; a disability; drinking too much; or discarded by their husbands for  behaving badly.  They were referred to as prisoners on arrival, had their heads shaved and were given second hand prison uniforms patterned with convict ‘bread arrow’ symbols.  With no therapy, many stayed 20-4o years or until they died.

The hope is that the spirits of these women and children are slightly soothed by Rose and Robin’s quiet presence within its walls.



Today the Fremantle Art Centre is a thriving community hub where families picnic in the safe, shady grounds; people attend music concerts and art exhibitions;  do art courses; and relax within the beautiful historic walls and surrounding gardens.

September 8, 2018 - Talking Books



To coincide with the opening of the Fremantle Art Centre Print Award, Thursday 13th September at 6.30pm, I’ll be doing an installation in the glass cabinet outside FOUND gift store at FAC.   Books and dry-point prints will be available in FOUND and the new book, ‘Wisdoms of Rose’.  Pop down on Saturday afternoon the 15th at 1pm and join me for a relaxed Artist Talk about how the collection evolved through underground publishing ethos of The Black Dog Project and the creative process of making both the handmade and published books.





The typewriter Clunk & Jam book was typed on.  Also pictured, dry point prints printed on the  Fremantle Art Centre old printing press.  Handmade and published books.


Handmade books.
