"you are here" focussed on two different areas of Australia:
- one was the Pyrenees region in Victoria where I was living at the time, rolling hills and farmland, cold and greys skies through the winter.
- the other was a visit to Bon Bon Station in Outback South Australia, an old sheep station now owned by Bush Heritage Australia, which focuses on regenerating farmland back to its natural state before farming.
The capacity of the land to regenerate is incredible, and with good management and pest reduction, the mostly devastating impact of farming on this fragile ecosystem can be reversed.
The proceeds of the sale of one painting in this show were donated to Bush Heritage Australia.

"You are here" was exhibited at Jackman Gallery in 2012/13.
