Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

Opening on tomorrow evening!


It was a busy yet quite wonderful day today! More on that below.

Tomorrow, the Show I've been working towards for a time, esp for this past month ... will be opened by guest speaker, Scientist Rosemary Hill. I'm so looking forward to seeing some of the wonderful people Ive met here who'll be attending the evening opening... or perhaps popping in over the weekend when I will be at the Gallery before heading back to Brisbane next week.

HOMAGE TO THE SEED

Read more information here. Friday 12th October, from 6pm and 10 till 4pm on the weekend I'll be around


One thing I wanted to achieve before I left was to get up to Daintree National Park and see a new friend Sheryl who was a Park Ranger up there and is now an artist and involved in a wonderful Indigenous Art project at Mossman Gorge, in a truly beautiful part of the world.

Only arrived back home at 9pm and am looking at the long list of to-do's for tomorrow so there's no time to download photos now of the spectacular tour through the World Heritage listed Rainforest.


seed material from June trip to this region



Recent seed material gathered with the help of Gardens friends

Just looking through my photos realising how many I've yet to resize for blogging since I've been in Cairns. The fantasy of posting most days soon dawned on me. 

One feels so ambitious at the start of the residency... then  come delays and challenges and soon time seems to be flying.so there is an earnest attempt to pull off hoped for outcomes!

Hello to all..,

back soon with some great photos I promise!

Sophie, very good luck with this exhibition. I know it is the culmination of lots of study and hard work so it should be a great success. I love that recurring seed pod motif of yours and I bet the people who come will do the same. How could they not?

thank you Lesley...
and to all bloggy friends!
I'll finish taking images of work today while I am in the gallery.
This has been the most satisfying exhibition of my work as the curating is, to my way of thinking, quite superb...and the gallery is surrounded by rainforest and all the species I work with are found in this region.
Its been blissful, hard work and I am very tired but delighted.
