It's HOT and that's not just outside

As the end of the year rushes up to greet us, wish us lots of cheers and then do a swift right turn and we're on highway 2020, I just want to say a big thank you to all of my dear friends who have been on this journey with me so far.


I thought it would be time for an end of year review, after all it's been a big one. Moving to a new place, building a beautiful studio, being on the Noosa Open Studio Art trail, exhibited at the University of Queensland Art Museum, a unique solo show at Mister Bianco, bushfires and becoming acquainted with all that this amazing part of the world has to offer. Meeting new people who are so generous, thoughtful and helpful has made this all the more possible.


So much was going on, but I'm certainly looking forward to an even more exciting year. I'll be launching a business, Mind this Moment where I'll use my experience as a creative thinker in combination with offering pathways through deep coaching to unlock your confidence so that you can reach your goals and be inspired. In March, I'll be exhibiting several new works in a solo show called, I Am Here. I will be referencing the bushfires, the effect of these events as a backdrop that mirrors my own journey from devastation to renewal. This will be showing at the Cooroy Butter Factory Arts Centre.


These are a few of the works that show the experience of listening to my inner voice. My daughter travelled overseas, attuning oneself to what is unfamiliar yet draws you forward, hope and peace. What more can we ask for. I paint my dreams, my visions and my intentions. Also my sorrows.


Keeping It Together, oil on canvas

Doing this on my own, away from my kids, has been really hard. But, if I can keep those balls in the air, I'll be able to travel and visit them, meet new people and finally finish my novel.

Merry Christmas Everyone and a Happy New Year.


P.S Small works, or big ones! as original gifts are an excellent idea, so jump on board and let me now if you would like to give a painting to someone special. Email me here.
