Hello there you! Here you will find stuff about living a creative life in country Australia. I am an illustrator who also creates, takes photos, faffs, collects, teaches and hosts workshops. Watercolour, doodling, collage, colour, cheese, salads, travel, collecting ephemera and dreaming make me happy dance. And cushions. And cactus. And gardening. And op-shops. And art supplies. And the word serendipity. And you reading this...

NEST

 the nesting instinct
birds nest hair
nestling in
nestled
nest

comfort, protection, safe, ensconced, 
all good things

They fall out of trees, I find them, I keep them, I collect them, I treasure them.
So if you find one, feel free to send it to me. By carrier pigeon perhaps? Airmail?

With threads, string, wire, cotton, wool, fluff, twigs, twine.

Litle birds, little engineers, little architects.

Little marvels.
