If you have received this blog, then you are either a fan of my visual art or a person interested in expanding your knowledge of spirituality and contemporary culture. Maybe you just want an impressive book to sit on your coffee table! Hopefully, you are all three!
ART & SOUL, a monograph recording the ten (10) years of my visual art practice based in Melbourne, is published by the noted art publisher MACMILLAN PRESS. Storage for this book is no longer available at the warehouse. The editor has made me a once-off offer to find good homes for as many of these books as is possible. (In order to keep their well-earned printing reputation, MACMILLAN PRESS does not pass on their books to cut-rate book distributors.)
So, if you would like a FREE copy (RRP $88) or copies for the cost of postage and handling, this is the time to order! After this, they are gone forever! Get some for your Christmas Gift List now!

‘OUT FOR LUNCH’ This is me saying I have a lot of material from DINNER to add to this Blog but currently, I am having trouble seeing the point of being so diligent as an artist! I feel myself tipping toward the slippery slope of ‘whothehellcaresaboutwhatIdoinart’. I have been back from Darwin for two weeks where I presented this fine exhibition – in many formats – with NOT ONE PERSON inquiring about what art happened there. Maybe this isn’t enough for me anymore. I am certain that I do not want to burden anyone with my art rantings and raves. But my art is not about me doing my ‘thing’ in secret because I am driven to do so. It needs an audience. It needs some sort of external validation to continue to develop. I do not know what that would be but it is not happening…after almost forty years of hard labor on my part and, apparently, on the part of everyone who has come into my clutches. Maybe I should cut the losses and leave this vocation now. I do not know who I would be if I did so..but maybe it is time to find out.
This image is one in a series showing the artist trying to make her way in the vast unknown called life. Don’t worry, she makes her way safely down the slope but hesitates to go back up on the podium again.
They have been very resourceful in finding suitable recycled timber to make STACKHOUSE in Aarhus, Denmark. This choice is very near the original recycled fence palings used in the Australian counterpart. I Hope there is enough timber. It is deceptive how much wood is actually needed. I am worried that in the in the spirit of the Goon Show…’You can’t get the wood, you know.’
I am excited to see how the project develops!
