Latest Exhibit

‘My Pop, My Hero’

This work was part of a local exhibition run by Burrinja Cultural Centre, the ‘Upwey Archies’.

It had to be a portrait of someone important to me. I decided to use an old photograph of my grandfather, Bert. I used my imagination for the oranges, because he was an orange grower in Robinvale. I will never forget this beautiful man.

  1. What a fantastic image you’ve created Mel. A very personal piece with great depth of feeling. Love the monochromatic palette contrasted against the bright warmth of the oranges he grew.
