Hello, and welcome to my art blog from Tasmania, Australia. I've spent time as a plant geneticist, teacher's assistant, painter, glass artist and book illustrator. I'm usually in the studio, the classroom or the lab. If you'd like to see more, please try the links to my folio page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Hello earthlings. I know, I know ... I'm overdue to emit my fortnightly faint cry from the art dungeon ... but check this out! Yesterday was One Word One Day in Hobart. Eight illustrators got together in the foyer of the ABC studios to fling paint at paper. Gamely taking this in their stride, the ABC laid down groundsheets and interviewed us on live radio, thus giving me the chance to say: 'This is an initiative of the Australian Society of Authors to raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation' at which point my tongue tied itself in a knot. Here we all are waving our paintings, which were on the theme word 'Once'. Left to right we are: Ben Lambert with the lollipop lad, Chris Mister with the giraffe, Tony Thorne with star-crossed lovers on a park bench, Christine Booth with the starship, Christopher Downes with the dragon, me with an alpine thylacine meeting, Coral Tulloch with an entire epic and Robyn Hopcroft with an angel. The art materials were supplied by Micador. I can't wait to do it again and wish I could spend EVERY day working in the company of seven other artists.
