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, teaches & hosts workshops. Watercolour, collage, colour, cheese, salads, travel, collecting, & dreaming make me ridiculously happy. And gardening. And op-shops. And art supplies. And the word serendipity. And you reading this. Oh and so you know, all the art & photos you see on here are done by me!

7 photos


It has been so very long since my last blog post,I really cannot quite believe it... 

Time has just escaped from me and the truth be told,there has been a bit of a loss of bloggy mojo going on.It just kind of slid by the wayside,as life got busy,and I got a few commissions,a few great jobs,painting up new challenges and ideas,doing some collages, had a few little holidays and some time hanging with my kids and hubby.I even spent some time in my garden again,and did some planting and nurturing of poor plants that have been much ignored of late.Even better,picking and gathering things from my garden to put in some of the gazillion vases that I have collected,and putting them all around the house.It just makes me happy!

What else have I done....? 

Well,I did a #7 Vignettes,and even did a weaving especially for one of the prompts,(see HERE of an explanation of what this means!)I have been loving and revelling in the glorious colours of Autumn leaves and the cooler days and nights,and getting back into my flanellette pyjamas.Been taking the dogs for walks,pottering around.... 

That's about it actually! Nothing too exciting,nothing too radical.It's just been pretty nice.But,I have missed blogging. Really!

So how have you been?
How's things with you?
