Tall Poppies (2013, one-of-a-kind artist book, ink and
acrylic paint, cloth bound, 80 x 15 cm open).
The books were originally accompanied by a suite of miniature paintings. Although finished works in their own right, several of these (including the painting, Tall Poppies) served as working images for the artist books.

Whenever I travel to Canberra, a visit to the NLA is always included. When I was last there in late March, I fantasised about one day having some of my own work in the permanent collection. So the acquisition by the National Library of Australia is nothing less than a dream come true.
