Photography by Lindsay Ham

One of the best things about being an artist is you get to met other talented artists.  Let me introduce you to Photographer Lindsay Ham...
Lindsay is currently working on a project taking photgraphs of artists working in their studio space. Here's Lindsay in action, his lovely partner Rainy took these two images for me as a memento.
The images below are taken by Lindsay.  I loved how he converted them into black and white so of course I followed suit with the images above J
Here's me in my studio along side my assemblages.

 ...and then in my sewing room.  Here I am sitting at my Singer treadle sewing machine while working on sewing my tea bags - I've got the hands out describing something!...? 

Thank you Lindsay for allowing me to share these images.

hop of the bus! + Official Opening 'time' changed

Please amend or make a note in your dairy folks the time for my Official Opening of Insight: Journeys in Steel and Clay (Gympie Regional Gallery, Sat 17th August, 2013) will be from 5.30pm onwards and not 1.30pm as previously mentioned (to which I have now amended).

Also, I am excited to announce my Guest Speaker for the evening will be Stephanie Outridge Field.  I had the pleasure of hearing Stephanie talk at an exhibition opening some time ago at Noosa Regional Gallery it was truely an inspirational speach which left us all on a high.

And, In the spirit of things and in total excitement!!! I have booked a bus to transport my supporters to Gympie for the opening.  I am capping it at 20 people max.  The cost will be $10 per person (I will be subsidising $10 per person) So... if you are interested in hitching a lift up the highway let me know asap - email me at and I will send you the details...

Of course, this is not the bus that will be transporting you there, but it is a groovy looking bus!
You will be in very safe hands and transported with Lyn from Mystic Mountain Tours.  Lyn took myself and a group of ladies on a Hen's day out, it was an awesome ride - btw, if your ever in need of hiring a bus, I highly recommended them!

week of medieval fun!

Its that time of year again when I dust off my medieval boot scooting boots and enjoy the medieval festivities!  A week long full of activities hosted by the Abbey Museum.  For me, kicking off tomorrow I'll be facilitating my medieval 'Coil Pots' Pottery Workshop with the little tackers at the Kids' Medieval Fun Day....  I'll be in tent number 8 having just as much fun as the kids!!!

...and then, on the weekend (6 Sat & 7 Sun, July) out come my wares for the 2013 Abbey Medieval Festival - the adults time for fun!  Abbeystowe comes alive full medieval glory and goes back in time to Medieval Europe from 600AD to 1600AD... 

Here's a photograph of me (before my days of owning a digital camera) and my stall when I used to be a one man band, dating back over 13 years ago!  Its amazing how all those years ago it took one vision, a humble little event and has now turned into a major tourist attraction which had over 30,000 people through the gates last year...
