I have been fortunate to spend the last 20 years becoming acquainted with the Shoalhaven River, painting and drawing en plein air from Coolendel to Coolangatta. There are many sites I return to again and again to record my impressions and deepening awareness of the historical resonance of each place.

In Spring last year, I spent a month as the inaugural artist in residence at St Albans on the MacDonald River, a tributary of the Hawkesbury. I was struck both by the similarities and contrasts with the Shoalhaven and I conceived the idea of making an exhibition which juxtaposes the two rivers. It has inspired me to return to the more familiar Shoalhaven sites with a new awareness of the historical narrative to record the mood and atmosphere and discover what lies beneath the surface of appearances.
