Things have been very busy in the studio as I am preparing to be away for 6 to 8 weeks and want to get as much done here as I can while I have everything on hand.
I am really looking forward to reconnecting with my beautiful Clarence River and getting home for a while and I will be taking a lot of art materials and setting up a studio space to work in while I am away.
This is a piece I am working on at the moment, it is about the river and my connection to that place, I have called it Kundalini Pathway and it is about the spiralling journey of life and where we feel at home, what lifts us up and makes us feel good. It is one of 4 pieces I am working on to be shown at the Grafton Art Clubs 44th Jacaranda Art Exhibition Saturday 27th October - Saturday 3rd November at the Grafton Community Centre, don't miss this great show if you are in Grafton for the Jacaranda Festival.
I am also running a weekend workshop at the Grafton Art Club

Come along for a fun and creative workshop to discover the joy of art journaling.
An art journal is a powerful creative tool, offering you a safe space to explore,
to consider different ideas, to experiments and play with different materials and styles and to create a meaningful memento of your journey as an artist.
Over this weekend we will play with various mixed media techniques, making a cover for our journals / books and working on pages within.
