In early 2017 I decided to write a book. I wasn’t sure what the book was going to be about, other than it was going to involve my love for the arts. This all came about because my mother who passed away, too young, had written a book which she hoped to have published but this never eventuated. I feel very proud to have completed this book and I feel that my Mum has been with me all through this journey encouraging me to get it done even when at many times I thought it would never get finished. I first moved to the Central Coast from Western Australia in 1989. I instantly fell in love with the Central Coast and was in awe of coastline and its beautiful bays, beaches and the great surf. I eventually settled in Kariong and loved kayaking the mighty Hawkes Bury river. The Central Coast is one of the most beautiful parts of Australia stretching from the Watagan mountains in the west and Lake Macquarie in the north.

Considering the amazing landscapes and environments my love for art and having many opportunities to meet and work with many of the local artists over the last twenty years I decided to write a book that told the reader the artists story from when they first started art to where they are now in their art careers. It was important to me that I covered various art mediums, genres and styles so I reached out to sculptor’s, photographers, environmental artists and most importantly some of our local indigenous artists.

The result of all of this hard work and amazing support from all of the artists and many others is a beautifully designed coffee style book showcasing 39 amazing local artists.

At the book launch we will also be showcasing the contributing artists with an exhibition of some of their art works.
