While I have a beautiful studio in my garden in McCrae on the Mornington Peninsula, I’m still searching for a shopfront and residence suitable for a small gallery cafe. These beautiful buildings in Tasmania took my fancy.

Mungo

I just returned from a short break to Mungo and the Murray. I simply adored Mungo. Click on any picture to view in large screen gallery format.

Shop shopping

A collection of shops for sale or sold or that just took my interest when on my recent holiday across South Australia and New South Wales.  Click on any photo to see the Gallery in large format.

One of my first teapots made from acrylic sheet, size 12.5 cm x 22.5cm. This teapot is not designed with functionality in mind, it is first and foremost a work of decorative art, though it should be known that it pours beautifully.

This and the other acrylic pieces I am bringing to this blog, were produced for my first solo show at Solander Gallery Canberra in May 1988 titled ‘A New Perspective”.  These images are from scanned slides and some have sustained damage over the years.  I still have the majority of items in store and will endeavor to re photograph them as I find the time.  Please feel welcome to contact me if you have any interest in purchasing any of these items or if you are curious to learn more about them.
