I am a South Australian artist and writer who likes to examine various aspects of our world and represent them in personal ways. I love to paint Australian flora and landscape and I love to capture in writing the thoughts and actions that make up day-to-day life and to draw out their riches.

Oh hooray, the poetry is making a comeback!
Something about the notion of gathering thoughts leads to ‘gathering rosebuds while ye May’. I like the analogy, a basket full of half-formed, immature beginnings that are already beautiful but are still to come into their full glory. And some of them might end up collected into a considered, skilled arrangement while others might be discarded, and that’s ok.
Yes, a basket of potential! An exciting thought. ❤️
and in motion, and betwixt the gather
is a finding simple delight in the lather
of bubbles of space,
full of equally empowering and gorgeous grace
