Working on the finishing touches  of my  piece “Bearded Sun Gods”  for this exhibition opening next Thursday night.   Gold leaf is so beautiful to work with and certainly adds a new dimension of light to works on paper.   Pictures of work will follow as soon as I have a moment.

Bookmaking for Shaun

In recent times, I felt incredibly  honoured to be asked by a good friend to make a handmade  Funeral Register book for family and friends to write their messages of love.     I made the  book with so much love and care,  using  April’s beautiful pencil drawing of Shaun and embossing each handmade page with a different Bruny Island gum leaf.  Rest in Peace beautiful Man.
