I was one of 86 artists invited to paint a life size fibre glass cow for the Margaret River Cow Parade. Margaret river was the first region to host Cow Parade and it was generated a huge amount of interest bringing thousands of visitors to the area. My cow “We didn’t do it” was on exhibit at Busselton Shopping Centre from March to July. I was thrilled that at auction in July, “We didn’t do it” fetched the highest price selling for $18,000. All proceeds went to charity. “We didn’t do it” now lives on an Arabian stud farm in Serpentine and proudly looks down from the hills over the amazing landscape.

I had also collaborated with friends to paint the cow for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). The SCBWI cow was purchased by the State Library WA where it is now on show in the Children’s Section.
