Lovely opening at Nexus Community Gallery, Bellingen. Thanks to everyone for coming and making my day.

It was great to have a show Natural INKquiry at The Shop Gallery, Glebe with my artist friend, Janet Reinhardt. 
It was fun to meet all different visitors to the exhibition, including other artists and some collectors. Some of my works are now on their way to Israel and India, and one has been purchased by an Australian television company for a new series of a political thriller. 
My partner John Bennett opened the show with a great speech about Janet and my work, and you can read this at the link for INQuiry launch below. 

Some new works will be in the Linden Postcard New Arts Show in Melbourne. Sounds like the opening is a Sellout, so that's great! To see more about it click on this link. 

I've put together a few words about my recent art practice, which I call EcoInks.  

Busy creating new Nature Inks for my artwork, all from my garden in an effort to be more sustainable in my practice. 

But also, I am loving the effects I can achieve with plant materials, definitely not high on the 'repeatability' ranking, as synthetic pigments are. But so variable and unpredictable - fantastic!

Hooray for Kit Kelen and crew in getting Project 365+1 Blog up and running. Thanks for allowing me to contribute for October! To see the entries, click here. 

In my recent trip I was too long from home, but what experiences; being knocked off my feet by Iguazu Falls, Argentina and Brazil. Definitely inspiring new art works...

now that I am back to my bush studio...

Fantastic to find a great new teacher in Andrew Lo who  is moving up to the Mid North Coast from Sydney, like many of us! 
He has helped me learn so much about paper for my new Nature Inks work. But I'm also using some more traditional inks in some current works on Saatchi Online.

Grow your own Art is an essay on my new artistic direction, turning to nature for my materials as well as inspiration. I discuss influences such as Environment and 
Asian art, my mother's art and my love of the natural world.

In England I worked in an oak wood with my new project around trees. Mostly I've been using extracts from oak 
leaves and bark to create some new works, although these
are not in a finished state yet. For more on this work, please 
see my Inspiration page.
