I know everyone says it but honesty where did 2017 go! This year has been such an amazing whirlwind and I’m so happy to be able to share it with all of you. Some of this years Brooke Walker Fine Art highlights have been:
- Teaching 4 Beginners Classes with one inaugural class with the lovely folk at the Burnside Painters Group in Kensington – I’ll be teaching there again this June so keep and eye out for those classes
- Hopping over to London for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year awards and winning the ‘Hidden World’ Category prize! This was only possible through your support and generous donations
- Donating $2000 to aid in endangered wildlife conservation
- Swimming with sea turtles on the Great Barrier Reef off Port Douglas
- Winning the ‘Hangers Prize’ at the RSASA Solar Art Prize with my Great Barrier Reef 1 painting
- Moving into a studio at the beautiful Fleurieu Arthouse at Hardy’s Tintara McLaren Vale – if you haven’t been, do yourself a favour!
- Began a Conservation Masterclass with the one and only Jane Goodall.
There were so many great things I’ve probably missed some, so my apologies if I have.
In 2018 I’ll be working on a new set of portfolio exhibition oil paintings, still along the wildlife conservation theme but with a twist. I will also be conducting more drawing classes with an additional venue being offered at Gallery One in Mitcham. I noticed there is a large proportion of people wanting to participate in classes from the Eastern Suburbs, so I have done my best to accomodate. If you would like to register your interest for a drawing class please send me a reply email.
A five session Charcoal for Beginners class with start at Gallery One Mitcham on the 30th of Jan, you can find out more information or book here
Finally I would like to wish you all a fantastic festive season with safe and happy holidays and I thank you for your kind support throughout 2017 and into 2018. Please don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Facebook where I regularly post updates and little tips on what we can all do to help save our endangered species.
As the wonderful Jane Goodall says
Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help. Only if we help shall all be saved.
Love, peace and happy drawing,
