Pollination; summer buzzing.

Summer! It’s hot and there’s a lot happening. I don’t have time for many words but I thought I would give you a little pictorial of my work-life happenings over the holidays…

I have moved into a new studio! It was hard to leave this little beauty…

This room is holding a few of my works-in-progress and some cool bits and pieces from local friends.  There are always things coming and going.

This is the awesome crew from Together Dreaming – Boolarng Nangami Arts & Culture Studio from Gerringong. I can’t tell you about the project we’re cooking up here yet but it’s a biggie!

I ran some workshops.

Actually, I made them a few months ago but realise it was time to post a pic or two.

Oh and we harvested our first honey from my birthday beehive. Such sweetness.

And now I am heading out the door for a music festival and a little beach holiday with those little ones.

Into the new year with attempts at occasional stillness, new beginnings and lots of ideas being pollinated.

Bzzzzz.

P.S. Delivered sculptural pieces today to Goulburn Regional Art Gallery for a group show opening 31st Jan “Efflorescent – A Contemporary Take” It’s all artists working with or depicting flora –   I will keep you posted on that.
