I am re-imagining my blog, and enjoying a new format, and a simple look, to record thoughts and imaginings and share the space that is my studio.
Art has been a thread in my life from childhood.
In-between a career in the Merchant Navy, then raising kids and living in regional New South Wales (with my seafaring husband sometimes home), art found a way.
Now the boys have grown and we have resettled in O'Connell, a village near Bathurst. We have a picturesque farm that feeds Petes need to be outdoors, and my art. We've been here since 2008.
Pete gave me a gift that is difficult to quantify- a studio.
My space to work, to think, to plan, to play. A Diploma of Art gave me focus and intent, but the studio gave my ideas a place to be.
I want to share this with you, share my practice, my collections, and the things that move me to making.
My work hangs at the T.arts Gallery in Bathurst (Bathurst Chase opposite Coles), and The Avenue Cafe in O'Connell, along with numerous exhibitions here and interstate.
I hope you enjoy my studio, and its eclectic collections. I hope that it inspires you to collect, arrange, muse, and practice your art; wherever that might be.
