‘Gator in the Swamp

Posted on November 29th, by Jennifer in Blog. 4 comments

‘Gator in the Swamp

A commission is an exciting prospect for an artist and not just in the monetary sense. It becomes the chance to communicate ideas back and forth between the client and artist and the task is to get a satisfactory outcome for both parties. The client has to be happy with the result, after all it’s their money at stake and the artist must satisfy not only the brief but not compromise themselves artistically as well.

My latest commission has been a large(4.5metre) mural that depicts an everglades/swamp for a New Orlean’s themed bar.

Last night was the opening and got to see the mural up and hanging. I’m pretty sure it went down well with the clients and the patrons.

It definitely gave you the feeling of being right there on the edge of the swamp and I … Read More »



A New Year and new work

Posted on January 17th, by Jennifer in Blog. Comments Off on A New Year and new work

Etchings & objets trouves

A new year and some new etchings created down at Guyra. This is fly fishing territory and the creek and bush shows all the signs of massive flooding. Tangled timber and branches, debris and rocks, decaying bones and detritus. All grist for the enthusiastic etcher! The fly fisherman caught a fish as well!

Can’t wait to get them printed and had hoped to get them done during an etching workshop in the holidays. Unfortunately it was cancelled much to my disappointment.

Still there is next week….

Studio Sale hots up..

Something to suit everyone.

Where the Dead Leaf Fell

Finally relaxing

An oldie but a goldie.

A mixed bunch.

A change of paintings on the wall.

Despite the heat and there was certainly a lot of it today the Studio Sale attracted quite a bit of attention and there were sales. Whoopee! Lovely to catch up with friends though and just relax and share a glass(or two) of champagne. Jess you were a trooper helping with the preparations and D did his share as well thankyou both.

Let’s hope the temperature is a little kinder tomorrow. It makes for more comfortable art viewing if the weather cools down a bit.

The house and studio are looking quite different with a change of artworks on the walls. Some of them might become permanent fixtures!
