He was always going to be a bee in Spring.

My baby grandson’s third of twelve digital collages.  He was always going to be a bee this month of September which is Spring in Melbourne.  He has been a superhero, an olympic swimmer and now a bee.  Digital imaging, photography, collage and lots of love.beez

Rio Olympics baby swimmer.

This is month 2 of Mason’s life.  So far he has been a flying superhero and now he is an Olympic Swimmer.  10 more months (one per month) of silly, surreal images to create.  Photographs and digital work assembled on photoshop.  Month 2 rio olympics

Melbourne art trams for the Melbourne Festival. Sadly not mine.

Recently I submitted an image for art on a tram.  The image was from an art exhibition I had called I’m in Smith Street.  As many of the trams travel down Smith Street I thought this image of the buildings would look stunning on the moving tram.  It was a competition and sadly I was just informed that I wasn’t selected however I really enjoyed playing with the template so I am sharing with you.  Maybe when the winning entries are up and running I will photograph and show you.

Here are a couple of digital collage works I made when I studied Fine Art.

I was told that I would have to study digital artwork for my ELECTIVE subject.  I was not happy at the time and it ended up taking me so long to learn and catch up with all the younger students.  We were instructed to do something and I would watch all the computer screens change to blue and then another instruction and they would change to red etc etc  My screen remained the same because I didn’t know how to turn it on.  I was assured by the lecturer that it would come to me and eventually it did.  I graduated from the class with a Distinction.  I love Digital Imaging and still use it in my art practice (also teach).  These two limited edition images were from 2007.Slide2 Slide6

Digital, digital collage and some exceptional drawing skills (the rope).

Merry Christmas to all the creative people out there. I love following your blogs (mostly the visual aspects of them) and I love when mine is seen as well.

Best Wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2014.

Collage and Digital

I recently worked as an exam supervisor at a local university. It taught me to slow down, think of the moment, the walking around slowly is the bit I was really good at. I’m posting some photos taken just outside of the University, a photo of the gorgeous Northcote Town Hall and a few photos of an abstract painting that I am working on. I’m loving the change of medium and although it seems such a big change to abstract from collage I still feel that the process emerges in the same manner – accidentaly.

I have a Japanese signature I would like in English – can anyone help? It’s something like Naburo Itoh I think.

A little art collage blended with my gorgeous neice Julia.

I’m in the mood for painting. Haven’t done it for quite a while so I am playing on paper, on newspaper, scribbling on top of it, mixing it etc. So I am just getting to know it again.



This little people sculpture was made about 10 years ago – I emptied an old trunk and found lots of them.    I have framed several of my pencil drawings and am very happy with the selection because it needed to be subtle to suit the drawing.drawing of toy now framedAcrylics ready to goBooks - givawaysyarn bombsMy dog Ninnadrawing from sculptureNinna my Kelpie dog is almost 7 months old now. Soooo very energetic, needs lots of walks and company.

As I mentioned I am in the zone for painting however I will need much more preparation.  I have been very ambitious and have ordered a stretched canvas in quite a large size.  I need to let loose and have some fun.

Studio is just too hot so not very productive over last week or so. Such a consistently hot Summer this year even though Melb is famous for having four seasons in one day (miss that).

I spent a day at La Trobe University whilst my son Darcy made a presentation to future graduates about how best to apply for graduate programs.  I enjoyed myself immensely, everyone was pretty fresh at the uni and many people were lost, I found the library (see the Kitaj drawing of David Hockney) and I found their art gallery.  I went to a gorgeous cafe in Smith Street Fitzroy, dont recall the name as I just stumbled upon it.  It is near to Kerr Street end of Smith Street.  The pigeon is a mixed media piece I made in 2008 and the angel child is an oil painting of mine (rare) from 2004 (it’s the same child that gave the speech).  So I just cobbled together some bits and pieces for some visual stimulation and hope soon to produce some more work even though we have another hot week ahead of us in Melbourne.library la trobe pigeon collage angel darcy cafe smith st fitzroy 2 cafe smith st fitzroy darcy latrobe david hockney by kitaj
