Trial of Ned Kelly

Kelly Trial

Ned Kelly is probably Australia’s best known bushranger (i.e. outlaw) and there is something quirky about a barrister having a painting of a famous criminal in his room (but nevertheless that’s what I’ve done).

I commissioned this work from Brisbane artist, Elizabeth Holian who used Sidney Nolan’s “The Trial of Ned Kelly” as her inspiration. I’m really happy with the painting and with Lizzie!
