New Card Range

I have a few more images available in my greeeting card range now. You can see the current list at my Facebook page.

Its a bit of a slow process at the moment, testing out different print companies, but I hope to have more added in the next few months. You can help by going here and liking your favourites. I had a competition which is now closed, but your ‘likes’ will help me pick future cards 🙂

Out of Site – Exhibition @ CAST

23/07/2011 – 28/08/2011
Out Of Site 
Curator: Claire Needham

Out of Site is the work of six Tasmanian artists, responding to various sites of incarceration in Colonial Van Dieman’s Land; examining the history of orphanages, barracks, ports, gaols, farms, islands and other settlements and the lives contained by these walls. Space and place-specific works incorporating painting, sculpture, video, printmaking and digital imaging, bring together a contemporary view of men, women and children who were placed ‘out of sight, out of mind’.

Skullbone Plains

In April I went on another trip for the Tasmanian Land Conservancy. This time to Skullbone Plains as part of their New Leaf project.

On the way to the plains, we passed through some old logging areas, which are now reserved for the Wedge-Tailed Eagles  as a nest was found about 10 meters from the road!

There was a natural spring near our campsite and the area is full of little creeks and ponds. The endangered species in this area are a small fish (Clarence Galaxis) and Sphagnum moss. I saw my first wild quoll which was leaping about a few meters from our camp. A few of us walked off to Lake Ina which has sandy banks and was just like standing on a beach.

red spider

There are a lot of spiders in this area, with webs and burrows everywhere. I saw 4 or 5 different species but some were too swift to capture on film.  Oh and I did end up finding some skull-bones too – from a wombat.

I also found this little cocoon thing and I am curious to know what it belongs to. I think its made of silk but what emerged from it? Any ideas?
