Art news: Exhibitions and Paper Chained

I'm pleased to announce the launch for my fifth solo art exhibition, Portraits of Crime (pictured), was a great success. The exhibition is currently on display at Charlestown Public Library until October 5. All the pieces will then move up to Brisbane to become part of the Beyond The Bars group exhibition, organised by Green Fox Studios. Beyond The Bars will be on display for one night only on October 15, from 5 till 9pm, at the Queensland Maritime Museum. I'll be there and will also be giving a talk at the event. Registrations are needed to attend, so if you'd like to come please contact

In other art news, Issue 7 of Paper Chained, the art and writing magazine I am editor of, has just been released, and will be posted to our subscribers in prison tomorrow. Those of you fortunate enough to not currently be in custody can access the magazine for free at our website,

Artworks for the book I illustrated, This Is Ear Hustle, are still scheduled to go on display at the San Francisco Public Library in November, and I'm also please to announce my next exhibition in Australia will be held in Newcastle. I've been commissioned as one of six artists to create pieces for an exhibition at The Lock-Up in March 2023. This is particularly exciting for me as while I've held five solo exhibitions and already been a part of an additional six group exhibitions, I've never been hired and paid upfront for a show before. More details will be posted about that in time.
