On the edge of Woods Lake


I sit on my paper quilt of patchwork blue. Dark shapes of Currawong, cloaked in grey and inky blackness, flash by.    Bathed in prussian blue and bright warm sunlight,

vitreous humor particles float around me.   It is summer.  I am still.

From deep within their forest place, the piping songs of the Currawongs

entwine with guitar and double bass.  ♫♪ﻬ ♫♪♭♫♪ﻬ ♫♪♫ ﻬ ♫♪♭♫♪♫♪ ♫♪♭♫♪

On the edge of Woods Lake, I hear music.


 My latest print series “On the Edge of Lake Woods, I hear music” is currently showing at Parnella Gallery, St Helens, Tasmania.   The work is part of an group exhibition “On the Edge” and showcases the work  of 6  Bruny Island Women – Janine Coombes, Kate Mills, Marlene Schmidt, Margaret Vandenberg, Barbara Tassell and Myself.      The body of work that I created for “On the Edge” consists of embossed Cyanotypes stitched together to form paper patchwork quilts and a collograph, Linocut, chine colle triptych.

  1. Aha! I’ve found a way to see your work! Gorgeous. Absolutely love the cyanotypes and the feathers and honesty (is that what it’s called?) in particular. Yummmmmmmm.
    When you going to give a cyanotype workshop then??!!! Pretty please?
