I have recently added two new works to my Redbubble profile just in time for chrissy prezzies. Give the gift of functional art and support an artist this Christmas. These Stitched Landscapes are photographs from the Mornington Peninsula National Park digitally stitched to create a crafty, feminine uncanny touch. They look beautiful on apparal, stationary and home wares.
For two weeks only. Come and experience the work of 15 female identifying art makers.
Hiraeth is a Welsh word loosely translated to ‘homesickness’ yet the meaning extends far beyond this.
Hiraeth is a pining for a landscape that no longer exists. Or a longing for a place that resides only in our imagination or dreams or in our ancient medulla.
Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th of November 2018.
Come on a walking adventure exploring the rich sensations of Moreland! Traversing South to North from Jewell to Fawkner, Environmental Performance Authority (EPA) invite participants to follow the lead of their senses: to look, hear, smell, touch – even taste. SENSORY LINE focuses on the places in between that we might usually ignore, treating them as complex, valuable ecosystems. Through live performance and guided participatory activities, the journey will release beauty, surprise and vivid experiences from hitherto unremarked places through the changing atmospheres of day, evening and night.
Please bring your Myki (we might hop on the train), your walking shoes and clothing for various weathers. Eating will be part of our sensory experience along the way, and covered by your ticket. Bring a bottle of water.
Meet at Jewell station Garden Cafe at 3pm and finish at Fawkner station 9pm (approximately).
Half walks available too. Either meet at 3 and finish at 6 in Coburg or Meet at 6 in Coburg at Falafel House and finish at Fawkner.
SENSORY LINE is proudly supported by MoreArt.

Check out this performance work I made and performed in India.
It’s called ‘Can You/How To/Attempting To Unfuck The World/Yourself/Myself’. Think that says it all really.
It goes through 5 meditations to help with Unfucking.
1. Let it Out. Cathart. Fuck-it Meditation
2. Crying Helps. Weep for the World/Yourself/Myself
3. Share it (or don’t)-the angst, the pain,the frustration
4. Feel the Impotence/Feel the Power. Give a Fuck
5. Fight/Surrender to the Fuckedness
Check out the video and more about the work here:
