  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.


 Having taught for 30 years I am now a full-time artist, Have a look at the blog to get an idea of what I am doing more or less day by day.
