I have recently gone off on a completely different track!!  It was pure accident and one that I have quite enjoyed.  I was making a bird for a commission and it inspired me to make other birds and some more hanging fish (which I had done previously) so now I am doing a small range of birds that don’t really look like any sort of bird you would see in real life as I’m not that good!  but they are fun and cute and have real feathers that I have collected.  So once again it is the process that can be the most fun.  Shortly I am going to be in Nannup for their annual Garden & Flower Festival, so I thought that some birds might just be the thing.  I am joining some other artists in holding a market that connects to the Festival.   It is being held in August so if you are in the area call in and say Hi.!

The weather has been lousy here in the South-West of Western Australia but having said that it is winter!!  But normally its not this cold, very low temperatures, which is unusual.  Apparently there’s even been snow in some areas Ouch!!!!!  So I have been hibernating inside doing paperwork, blogs etc. as the workshop is a bit chilly even with thick socks and big boots.

I have been working on shadow boxes recently and have done quite a few of different sizes and am enjoying the process of adding my found objects to form a scene, an each one is unique.  I am saving them for my second solo exhibition in Busselton in November.  Lots of work to do and I’m both keen and excited to announce a second exhibition in January at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery which I’m collaborating with the very talented Sharon Hinchcliffe of  www.arlidesign.com.au so my life is out of control at the moment trying to work on two exhibitions and my normal production line.   But I always work well under pressure and I need time to beachcomb as the swells have been fantastic lately so much to explore.  I will keep you posted….
