Starr’s latest solo exhibition is based on the beloved Lewis Carroll fairytale Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, taking influence from the classic Disney movie. She has also drawn upon various other iconic images and a touch of the current dark and far more sinster Tim Burton movie showing Alice as an adult.
Starr’s work shows the journey a modern woman takes as she struggles to hold on to traditional values. iPods, Facebook, Coke Cola and the Twilight phenomena are all intertwined as she navigates her way through an ever changing technological world.
Whether it be ‘Wonderland’ or Brisbane, this exhibition is brought together by the unique style and colourful imagery that can only come from one artist…. Starr.
this exhibtion opens in brisbane in dec at the REDHILL GALLERY .......will be the offical unveiling of the ALICE SERIES. xox

So yes I love too rollerskate .....................LOVE IT . oddly this pair are very easy to stand in most days while i am painting ........however did u think i got all the energy into my paintings , its happens as i swish past . lol . Well what dose go on in an artist studio is always fasinating i guess .Mainly a lot of FOXTEL noise in the back ground . Noise is the important thing as i really dont wanna feel alone . Yes if you dont like your own company then this occupation might drive ya mad. Van gogh went mad but i dont think it was from foxtel or rollerskating in his studio . Would be a boring world if all artists came out of the same mould.

My brisbane gallery http://www.redhillgallery.com.au/ have some of my works in the hilton currently and this one "twilight" is a personal fav .Its always lovely to see you art work hung on white walls ......divine. :), Clearly the story bridge is our cities ICON. I love to paint something that has structure like a bridge as the trick is to catpure on canvas something so well known to locals but still in the way i paint. I just wanna let you all know the bridge dose not move and it wont change pose's for me so there are only so few views from around the city i can get photographs to work from. This is the drama of having your number one model a bridge.....lol. I paint the sydney harbour bridge with the same passion but those works always end up in sydney. So last night while having a drink in at the hilton i was thinking too myself i wonder what colours i will paint the story bridge in next.......x

Over the years i have been so very lucky to have some of the most georgous models to paint. Its not just beauty but also the girls spirit i wanna capture.I feel inspired in the presence of beauty .....let face it who would not !!!!!. I become attached to my models so hence they become muses. I have been working with my current models for years now and i love nothing better than chatting about their lives and dramas as i paint them.x
