  • Michael Howe calling himself "The Governor of the Ranges" was the captain of a gang of bloodthirsty wretches. One day they attacked an Aboriginal tribe and carried away many of the young girls. A beautiful girl, that was to become known in history as "Black Mary", became Howe's lover, and although the other girls eventually escaped into the bush, she stayed with him, and soon became indispensable to him. She was his faithful and devoted companion, servant, mistress, and also his trustworthy confident, ally and scout. However, soon she was to experience his cruel and despotic behaviour! The soldiers of the 46th regiment were out, combing the countryside in their search for the "bolters". Suddenly they appeared everywhere, and Howe ran for his life. Black Mary, now pregnant to him, tried to protect Howe by staying between him and the soldiers. On the spur of the moment Howe decided to kill her, knowing that if she were caught, she would be used as a lead to catch him. He fired at her, then disappeared into the bush. After a long and fruitless search, the soldiers gave up. In the meantime Black Mary, who had been badly wounded, was found by her people who nursed her back to health. One day she appeared in the soldiers' camp, offering her services - she would track Howe down for them. The officers agreed and accepted Black Mary's offer. She led the search party through the bush with certainty and skill, and finally found Howe. Her great love turned to hatred and she refused the money they offered.  After trying to kill her and her unborn child… can’t say I blame her!

  • Henry was born in Waterford, Ireland, in 1819. At 21 he was sentenced to seven years transportation for stealing a pair of shoes. Henry was in and out of Gaol for various crimes, but while in Pentridge, he had met two brothers, Thomas and John "Jack" Lloyd from Greta in Victoria. They were the uncles of Ned Kelly and were serving 5 years for cattle stealing. Shortly after escaping, Henry turned up in the north-east visiting his old inmates under the alias of "Harry Power" and set up a permanent camp on the hill at the back of Glenmore Homestead. Although he never committed a murder, and he very seldom took money from the poor, he possessed an extremely violent temper. Ned Kelly (who was barely fifteen when Power introduced him to the life of crime), described how much he had been frightened of him. Ellen Kelly, who despised Power, called him a "brown-paper bushranger", but he was indeed the most notorious bushranger in Victoria's colonial history, who taught Ned Kelly how to survive and elude the police! Harry Power eventually dropped Ned (so he said), calling him a coward, and pursued his "career" alone. Ned said that he left Power after he lost his temper, because he was frightened of him. Ned's was probably the more accurate account but his actions did not save him from being arrested in May 1870 for assisting Power, and despite his feelings he didn't betray his "teacher" - someone else did....   One of the most surprising things about "Old Harry" was the fact that his mother was transported to Van Diemen's Land only six months after he was, and with her had been sent three daughters and a son, who were placed in an orphanage until her release. On Saturday 10th October, 1891, Harry arrived at Swan Hill by train in order to visit his nephew and most likely his half-sister. He stayed at the White Swan Hotel, but made no mention of why he was really there. He was last seen alive on Monday when he purchased a bottle of English Ale. The following Sunday his body was found floating about ten miles downstream from Swan Hill.

  • Amongst the criminals who arrived on the First Fleet was a giant black-man named John Caesar. He was an ex-slave from the West Indies, who somehow had escaped and reached London. Not being able to find a job he became a petty thief and pickpocket, and following his capture was transported to Botany Bay. Now more commonly known as "Black Caesar" he came ashore in January 1788. Due to the failure of supply ships to reach the colony, the meager rations handed out to the convicts meant that they were starving, and for a big man like Caesar, the hunger pains must have been unbearable and is probably why he decided to escape into the bush and forage for himself. He took a musket, an iron cook pot, and some food, and headed into unknown territory. For some time he and several other "bolters" who joined him managed to survive. But Black Caesar was recaptured and returned to the convict gangs. He did this repeatedly until the Governor, George Hunter, offered a reward of five gallons of rum to the person who could capture the convict. A settler named William Blakehurst, captured him without a struggle and received the reward. Black Caesar escaped once more but this time the reward was taken up by a man named Wimbow. On locating Black Caesar near Concord, Wimbow without uttering a word, shot him dead.

  • John James, James Duncan and James Morgan were the trio behind the infamous high-jacking of the cargo ship Nelson. Whilst the three men were visiting Melbourne they caught wind of the ship bound for London, and took great interest in its precious cargo -23 boxes containing 8000 ounces of gold valued around £25,000. On the night of April 2nd 1852 the raiders stole two boats and rowed out to the unguarded vessel. On board the ship were Mr Draper, the mate, three seamen, the cook, three passengers and a visiting second mate from the Royal George, all of whom were awoken by the gang as they took charge. After the gang secured everyone on board, Mr Draper was ordered to show them where the gold was. He was shot through his side and threatened within an inch of his life before he finally led them to the storeroom whereupon they broke down the door and helped themselves to the gold. Before the raiders left they herded the prisoners into the storeroom and nailed the broken door back on to hold them in while they escaped. Apparently, John James, James Duncan and James Morgan couldn’t keep their raid secret because although none of the passengers could positively identify the raiders (whose faces were concealed behind black crepe), these three instigators of the robbery were arrested one month later with a £750 reward for their capture. They were tried in May 1852 and sentenced to fifteen years on the roads, the first three years in irons. On December 18th 1852 John James was housed on the prison hulk President and was still wearing irons until December 30th 1856. For some unknown reason, on June 2nd 1858 he was granted a free pardon by his Excellency the Governor and released two days later.   Image Size:  73 x 102cm Medium:  Oil on Canvas This artwork is unframed

  • Maggie and Kate are the legendary sisters of Ned Kelly who, like the rest of the family, were exceptional horsewomen. Following the sentence of their mother, the Kelly girls took the responsibility for looking after the children and for maintaining their mother's selection. They also helped to look after their brothers, who were by then outlawed because of the shooting of the police at Stringybark Creek, in the Wombat Ranges. Kate with her sister Maggie, Tom Lloyd and Joseph Ryan travelled to Melbourne to obtain the cartridges for the weapons the Kelly gang were using. The police always kept a pretty close watch upon the movements of the family, nevertheless, they managed to purchase what they needed. Kate was carrying a large portmanteau and on their return journey two detectives accosted them at Winton railway siding and took the portmanteau away to search it. It contained only ladies clothes, but no sooner had they gone, Kate opened the window on the other side of the carriage and whistling to the man waiting on the platform she slipped him a parcel containing the ammunition. Nobody noticed it and the man quickly disappeared into the bush, while Kate returned to her seat, and remained absolutely calm as if nothing had happened. Maggie feared nothing. She rode frequently to their hiding places, be it day or night and with the skill of a daring horsewoman riding her horse "Lightfoot" through the rough and difficult country to reach them. The police watched the Kelly house constantly, and also tried to follow Margaret whenever she rode out. She led them on many a wild goose chase till they were absolutely exhausted. Maggie and Kate were prepared to do everything possible to help their outlawed brothers and were completely committed to their cause. They supplied them with food and clothes, ammunition and news that were very important for their survival and safety. Without the assistance of their sisters, the outlaws couldn't have remained at large for as long as they did.

  • These paintings depict the loss that both Kelly sisters endured as a sacrifice to their brothers’ cause. The Kelly sisters had a very strong sense of family and were totally devoted to helping the Kelly Gang, supplying them with food, ammunition and vital information, but this was certainly at a personal cost. Authorities kept a close eye on the Kelly home and whenever possible, would follow either sister on horse if ever she left the house. Such personal sacrifice, together with the feelings that can emerge –feelings of loss, grief, pain and anxiety to name a few, I have represented as an empty void, physically felt in the chest.   Image Size:  126 x 126cm Medium:  Oil and Wax on Canvas This artwork is unframed
