About Me

I have been a Visual Artist for all of my adult life and now also enjoy filmmaking. I am passionate about creating visually to draw attention to environmental and social concerns- through artwork, food, film....or any other medium that leads me down the path of sustainability and social awareness. I am now consumed by the healing potential of colour, essence and dyeing which have been my latest passion...Wearable Art "Of the Essence" Healing Coats.

Still doing the experential thing......

Well I feel like I am all over the shop but it would look a little contrived if I had letters in order doing it experentially. I am still not completely focussed and feel that the true letters and thoughts will be revealed in the second alphabet but this series feels organic and I am OK with that. I don't know how a watercolour can be organic but I think it is.

Great time watching 22 students working with fibre. It was heartening to know that this particular group of Grade 11 students were into textiles more than the normal painting and paper works. Maybe the tide is turning.

I am starting to see the alphabet in everything now...am I sending myself round the twist in a "water drip" kind of way. I am sitting at the breakfast table eating toast and an "E" in bark is on the floor beside me on the deck!!!!! Perhaps my mind was on other things on my walk this morning and my brain reminded me of my duties. At least the right side of my mind functions without me and keeps working.
