Upcoming workshop at Contextart, Australia..think Metamorphic......
Dear students of my upcoming workshop,
Really looking forward to meeting you all at Contextart along with my colleague assistant Cathy Moon-and getting that creative energy flowing between us!
Im also celebrating seeing my old friends after so many years and comparing notes about the course our destiny takes as life sweeps us along ...
“Your hand can seize today, but not tomorrow; and thoughts of your tomorrow are nothing but desire. Don’t waste this breath, if your heart isn’t crazy, since "the rest of your life" won’t last forever. Omar Khayyám, The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám- This was my mothers favourite poem ..
Here is my new series inspired by precious stones and crystals ,using the elemental metamorphic forces
of heat and compression that transform the cloth......
See you there
at Contexart under the auspises of our awe-inspiring and sagacious leader Janet.and right hand man Jude...
