- 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.

It is a big effort just to make a short doco on Madeira Vine...I am so lucky I have weed friends who will risk life and limb standing on the road at the Narrows, all in the name of filming. What trojans!!! Mind you that was the easy day, last Monday I had them crawling all over the Book Farm at Reesville frantically looking for the dreaded stuff. What a hoot we had but it was still hard work. Most of the film is shot now or should I say "in the bag", and we are in the editing phase. Only a month before viewing at the libraries as part of "Weedbuster week". It has been an experience to say the least.
Thank heavens for friends.
