Grand Old Dame is one of four artworks painted for the "Home Turf" Exhibition curated by Leanne McIntyre, Independent Curator and Creative Producer.

The Exhibition took place in the Graceville Uniting Church and focused on the Graceville/Sherwood areas in Brisbane, Queensland. A leafy district in the western corridor of Brisbane and home to the Sherwood Arboretum which was officially opened on World Forestry Day on 21 March 1925. Sherwood Arboretum was listed on the Queensland Heritage Register in May 2007 in recognition of its historical importance. (Brisbane City Council website)

This painting celebrates the magnificent fig trees growing down by the Brisbane River. Trees which I played in as a child, as my own children love to do when we visit the Arboretum.
