Sophie Munns: How a life-long immersion in the journal process 
has shaped current project 'Homage to the Seed'

I have included an afternoon to talk about my work... obviously if you miss this but wish to come on another day... + any of the OPEN DAYS up until Xmas I can share some of the material with you then!

Some of my older journals

The Cairns journal

If you have visited my blogs or other sites you might have gathered that journals have long been important in my Art Practice ... this is a chance to see some of the journals from over the years and see how important that have been in the developing process of my ongoing practice and current project. The Studio Archive blog has referred often to the journal process.

+ friday 30th 2pm 
Photographer Renata Buziak :

'Biochromes' ~ where nature + photography meet.

I got to know Renata in 2010 when on residency at Mt Coot-tha, Brisbane Botanic Gardens. She had been Artist-in-Residence there in 2008 and I've followed her journey over the last number of years with fascination ... this year reconnecting when both of us were working in a School AIR Project.

I'm very pleased to have her come on the Friday next week for a personal glimpse into her work, her exciting approach and unique vision of nature.

Sophie Munns said...

So much easier when in one's own home Studio Velma! Was thinking how lovely it would be to sit and stare out at your snow and enjoy cups of tea and conversation with you my dear!

Keep warm up there in that cold, cold country!
