When Work Stops Suddenly

I felt shocked and was spinning in free fall, all hopes of my PhD evaporating. I write this nearly three years later with…
I have begun drawing again after a lapse of many years and I have a large work on paper in a current exhibition, Moving Creatures at the Schoolhouse Gallery in Rosny.

New Range of Greeting Cards
I have created a new range of greeting cards using my soft, pinhole photographs, captured in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel area of Tasmania.

The first two weeks of July were spent constructing a Camera Obscura in a temporarily, unoccupied space in the Tasmanian College of the Arts.
