“(the exhibition) includes paintings from the Scariff islands in County Kerry, (or the Islands of the Kings), Cill Rialaig, 2014 series which were spawned from a residency at the Cill Rialaig Art Project during November 2013.  These evocative paintings of the Islands of the Kings call to mind the most beautiful paintings of Belle-Ille by another great Australian painter, the impressionist, John Peter Russell…”   Dr Shireen Huda  (Art Gallery of New South Wales)
