Homage to Caroline Chisholm Mosaic
I was commissioned to create a mosaic homage to Caroline Chisholm. The whole preparation, design, creation and installation of the mosaic took just over a year to complete, and the three-panel mosaic mural has been installed in the exterior windows of the Saint Peter and Paul's Old Cathedral, in Goulburn. On the 29th June 2011, the mural was unveiled by Ms Quentin Bryce, the Governor-General of Australia, and it was blessed by the Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese, His Grace Mark Coleridge. The reveal event was a huge success, attracting around 1000 parishioners and supporters of the community.watch a video of the work in progress watch a video of the installation process

Southern Cross Mosaic Mural
The Southern Cross mural is located in the chapel room of Trinity Catholic College, in Goulburn. Comprised of 5 unique mosaic stars, with the 4 larger stars representative of the Four Evangelists - St. Matthew the winged angel, St. Mark the lion, St. Luke the ox, and St. John the eagle. On the 13th - 15th November 2012, Stage 2 of the installation was completed, in which the stars were put into place amongst the universe backdrop. Stage 3, the final step of the installation will be the completion of the universe - painting the small sparkling stars surrounding the mosaics. The final element of the project was the installation of the Virgin Mother Mary and baby Jesus statue, which was recently installed in the chapel space. Surrounded by the painted universe backdrop covered in unique mosaic stars, the commission is complete.
