  • In March 2018 my painting Bombshells was shortlisted & exhibited as a finalist for the Collie Art Prize in Western Australia

  • In April 2019 I submitted an entry for the Archibald Prize 2019 of Muslim Community Leader Nail Aykan (below). Although I wasn't shortlisted for this, it really started me on the portrait thing, and to re-think a series of self-portraits of my place in this turning point in history.

  • Playing catch-ups, in 2017 I had artwork on the cover of Kyle Grayson's new book, The Cultural Politics of Targeted Killing: On Drones, Counter-Insurgency and Violence for Routledge in London. Wonderful book!!
