stars only come out at nite

It seems ironic, since my name is Starr that this exhibition will be my first ever to be focused on the beautiful lights of the night sky.

One of my earliest memories as a child was having my mother sing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ to me and in my teens it was Madonna’s ‘Lucky Star’ that had my imagination reeling. Now as an adult I indulge my passions in painting and I love nothing more than finding beauty in the night.

The wonder of the city at night and the magic of a starlit garden both feature heavily in my latest work. However, this exhibition heralds a stunning new aspect to my most iconic imagery in ‘Midnight Swan’; a sensuous new work that unleashes the dark beauty of the ballet.

This is but a taste of what will be on show when the ‘Starrs’ come out at night…

the opening nite is on the 14th of october and is strictly invite only so please contact the gallery directly if you wish to attend .ph 07 4638 4455.they are more than happy to send you out an invite  TOSARI GALLERIES TOOWOMMBA . QLD australia

This is the blurb about the current show ............just thought i would share x ohhhhhh and my latest alice painting in the series "wish upon a star" 


  1. It's funny,because last night I wrote a post on my blog called "Manning and Malthouse and The Dead End (Drive-in)".
    Ned Manning was the main star in a low budget Australian 80's movie called "Dead End Drive-in",also starring Wilbur Wilde from "Hey Hey,It's Saturday",where all these teenagers get locked up in the STAR drive-in theatre.
    You can watch the whole thing in a seven part You Tube if you haven't seen it.
    It's apparently one of Quentin Tarantino's favourite movies.
    I was also reading an article today in Nexus magazine called "Sacred Mushrooms and the Quest for Meaning",where it says Lewis Carroll used his knowledge of Siberian mushrooms effects in his book "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" where Alice nibbles on a mushroom that subsequently alters her size.
    How's all that for a coincidence?

    Love that painting too,by the way.

  2. why thank you darren your knowledge i checked out that artists work you like and yes you have great taste . yes there is always lots of points of view on alice hence why its an artist's dream fairytale to paint .

  3. Another artist I've bought work off and really like is Vanessa Valencia

    I think you would really like her work.
    She also does a lot of Alice in Wonderland stuff.
