I am often asked what else there is around Jindivick so I have had Helen Timbury make a Jindivick tourist map. It is available at most of the businesses in town and also at the sculpture garden... but it is also here if you want to download it Click here for Jindivick tourist map

There is an artical by me in the latest issue of Gippsland( the lifestyle) magazine... look out for it.

I  also  worked with Helen Timbury to create a Wine art Trail phamplet which will link the wineries, art sites in a trail  and also list the accommodation places... a 20 page bookletart wine trail cover.click here for wine and art tourist trail This has also been reprinted by the shire( with updates)  

Sue Kiernan and Bec Van Dyk made this little clip of me for the Emotion meet E art show at Yarragon... 6 minutes of me rambling on but the photos be Bec are Fantastic... mostly.. somehow she has made me look overweight and old.... dont know how that could have happened

  My work has been seen and sold throughout Australia and internationally, and most people know that each piece is unique and quite popular. ;  The distinctive "Laurie Collins" styling is reflected throughout the vast range of artwork I produce, from painting to drawing and my core junk sculpture work.

 I am active in the local community and I support the many art shows and community events within Gippsland and surrounding regions.  Jindivick is where I live and it is a beautiful setting in which to work and you can do worse than come and visit as there are lots of  local artists and other local attractions. Have a look at the "local events and artists" by clicking on the local attractions link provided.
