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 toagain and again to record my impressions and deepening awareness of the historical resonance ofeach 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 juxtaposesthe two rivers.It hasinspired me to return to the more familiar Shoalhaven sites with a new awareness of the historicalnarrative to record the mood and atmosphere and discover what lies beneath the surface ofappearances.
