I’ve been a regular contributor to the Australian Financial Review’s weekly Saleroom page since May last year, but I’ll be taking a bit of a break as I get ready for another baby. Hopefully I’ll be back down the track.

I recently finished up with Art Collector to focus on freelance art writing. Life has been busy. I had a news piece published in the Australian Financial Review and in August I travelled to Melbourne to report on the Melbourne Art Fair and Spring 1883 for Artnet.

While I was at the Melbourne Art Fair I also had the chance to interview artists Karl Wiebke and Richard Lewer for Art Collector’s YouTube channel.

I’m now working on a number of pieces for Australian and international publications that will be out soon.

I’m chairing a panel talk on emerging artists at the Institute of Modern Art in Brisbane later this month, to coincide with the museum’s Fresh Cuts emerging art show and the launch of the latest issue of Australian Art Collector
