Back to the bush...

As we turn the new year's (page) to 2017 - it's nice to start with a local wander.
It occurred to me that I post a lot of close up pics - and that you might not be familiar
with where I walk. I was also reminded of how as a child if I was taken on a bush
walk my response was often "but it all looks the same!" How wrong I was!

I thought this snippet would show you how scrappy and not particularly special my
'neighbourhood' is, but doing this quick edit on my iphone of course I couldn't help see
the beauty was SO obvious..

Then it was time to do a few close ups...

Really, this was an excuse to play... stay tuned as I've had the post it notes out
and have a plan... here's to a creative year...

Art retreat - Go Create

So as you may know, I was recently invited to an 'art in' at a textile + art retreat nestled in the beautiful pastoral country of the New England Tablelands. Founded by Vicki Taylor on her sheep and cattle property, the studio was created to draw like minded people into a community of creativity.

I was blown away by the diversity in the plants and set about capturing the essence of place (as seen in the previous post). 
Here is a glimpse at what everyone else got up to over the few days.

Artist in residence

Go Create is a textile art retreat in the beautiful pastoral countryside of New England, (halfway between Sydney & Brisbane, Australia). As you may know, I was recently lucky enough to stay there. Deciding to explore the place literally and visually, this is what I  F O U N D.

It was such a wonderful experience and the first time I have done anything like this: sharing a space with other artists, spending more than just few hours on my work, not having to worry about preparing food! and having no actual plan...

Coming soon is the edit that includes the other artists and what they got up to!
