And there it was … gone!

21st Century Nesting Practices has closed, and it’s all been packed and stored away again. So strange, that process: how things come out of boxes and wrapping to take on a life of their own for a while, and then disappear again. It was a great experience – a lovely way to come ‘full circle’… Read More

One more Week, and an Event!

This is the last week that 21st Century Nesting Practices is on exhibition at the McMullen Gallery. Amazing how fast the time has gone by! The exhibition closes  on Sunday February 25th; morning of the 26th, I’ll be in the gallery, packing up the work. In the mean time though – pop in if you… Read More

Gifts of an Unexpected Nature …

I’ve spent a lovely time over the last while catching up with family and friends. A very good thing, that reminds one on so many levels of precisely how rich life is, and how many blessings there are to count. Daily. In all that running-around-hanging-out-gatherings-feasts-grabbing-a-coffee-because-its-been-too long .. there has been such joy and laughter and… Read More

Just a few days … !!

Started installing NEST today at Harcourt House. Exciting! So, far, things are going smoothly … still a fair bit to do over the next couple of days, but overall I’m happy with the progress so far. Also had a quick visit from Catherine Owen this past weekend – she was in town for the launch… Read More

Books! Printed, Collated and Bound!

I’ve always been a sucker for paper, pens, letterpress … all the delightful things that keep reading and writing an immediate and tactile experience. I’m a bit of a Luddite or a throwback I guess, but there is something utterly irreplaceable and so very delicious about hand writing a letter with a fountain pen …… Read More

An Ongoing Dialogue …

I have been gifted with several such ongoing encounters, one of which I’d like to share today … I have worked on… Read More
