Additional Information

Professor Jenny Hocking, a former Monash University colleague and mentor,  is an award winning biographer whose latest work is a two volume biography of former Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam.  On May 29,2020 after a four year battle, she and her legal team won a High Court case seeking the release of the secret ‘Palace letters’ between the Queen and the Governor-General, Sir John Kerr, at the time of the 1975 Whitlam dismissal which are embargoed by the Queen. In this portrait, which was featured in the Hidden Faces Exhibition at Pan Pacific Hotel, Melbourne, I’ve included Old Parliament House Canberra in the background.  The former Labor slogan ‘It’s Time’ on the badge she is wearing can also be viewed as relevant to Jenny’s campaign. The title refers to Gough Whitlam’s description of Jenny as the ‘Queen of Biographers’.

Portraiture is one of my favourite genres and I enjoy contrasting larger flat areas of paint with finer details of the subject’s hair.

This painting is on quality Italian linen and framed with plain timber.
