I am a mixed media artist, living in beautiful Maleny on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Australia. My friends and family are a constant joy to me and my creativity keeps me fulfilled.
I paint, draw, make jewellery, design, sew, photograph, travel, and generally just have a jolly good life.
My work is generally abstract, in earthy colours and often combines rust paint or found objects. I find that old, worn, pre loved 'stuff' generates its own energy, which 'speaks' to the viewer. My work carries the essence of 'wabi sabi' - the Zen Buddhist philosophy of finding beauty in age and imperfection.
My blog site is http://wabisabiart.blogspot.com/
I am participating in this 'A Letter a week' project because it keeps me 'thinking outside the square'. I am not a calligrapher or a book maker but I have developed a love of book making as a form of consolidating samples and gorgeous bits too special to throw away.
I am looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations throughout the year.
