I love Australia and my trip to appear on I'M A CELEBRITY GET ME OUT OF HERE! in the jungle of Queensland in 2008 was a great inspiration for my art!
Timmy makes regular trips DOWN UNDER and on a family adventure in a camper van expedition from Brisbane to Cairns recorded the trip in pictures..... These paintings were the result.
The plan was to take a month to travel the couple of thousand kilometres. In the end it was longer because as always I get carried away and there was so much to see and experience we just travelled slower and slower! We also had to get used to the Queensland winter - 25 degrees most days and just as you're getting used to it and waiting for a lovely long evening the sun goes and sets on the dot! So you find you have to make better use of your daylight hours. Getting the mix of painting and family time was a challenge too. So I got used to working quickly. Sometimes there wasn't time for more than a quick sketch, on other occasions I was delighted to be able to work up something more finished. These paintings tell the story of the great aussie adventure!
