Hello! Lovely to see you! Here you will find random posts about living a creative life in country Australia. I am an illustrator. I create, take photos, faff, collect, teach. Watercolour, collage, colour, cheese, travel and dreaming are my faves. And Turkish delight. And cushions. And gardening. And op-shops...

Leaves seem to be cropping up in my photos a lot...even my sketching.I think their simplicity...but complexity to, is a little kind of wonderful
The colours in them, the range of shapes and sizes is really extraordinary. 
I walk around looking at the ground, finding new pretty ones, and smuggling them home-in handbags, on car seats, nestled in my hand.All ready to be displayed and snapped, admired.Then these little found treasures usually end up on the garden, becoming humous, or maybe stuck in a jar to gather dust and be part of my little nature collections, kept on my desk, on mantlepieces, on top of cupboards- to inspire and admire a little longer.
I just cannot seem to leave them alone!
