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.

Celebrating the Glossy Black Cockatoos-Placemaking Art


Today was the first day at the school to help prepare 200 sets of Glossy Black Cockatoo wings.  Eric Anderson the expert on GBC's gave talks to all the classes and my wonderful friend Janet came to help.  We got nearly to the half way mark.  The teachers and students made a great start collecting, cutting and painting last week.  Janet and I got them to the finished stage.  Will have to do some homework and hopefully finish them all off with the students on Friday.  Filming practice next week and the Place Making Art filming will be a goer on Thursday weather permitting.

It is a longtime coming but I finally worked out how to pop it up on YouTube and now to blogsite....techno chick kind of....I can highly recommend ARTIZ which is run by Flying Arts every year.  If you student child is leaning towards the Arts as a career it is a good sampling of what is possible....great guidance.  I have been a house mum and a resident camera girl at two of them and loved it!  If only it had been around in my day!

I hope you enjoy watching Jackson Li at work as much as we did.  I took a lot more footage so in the next few weeks you will get to see a little more of Jingdehzen.  Jackson Li is due to arrive on the Sunshine Coast as a guest of Clayworkers for workshops and a fabulous exhibition called "Hands of the Masters".
