I will have these works hanging as part of this group show
The Powerful Owls have been nesting again down at our local creek. This threatened species are suffering due to habitat destruction and the loss of old growth trees for nesting hollows. A shy and secretive bird, they are the largest of Australia’s owls and the babies are simply gorgeous. I have been documenting their progress and was so pleased to see not one but two babies this year. These looser and more intuitive works have come since my time with my fellow artists on our art camp at Villa Rustica. There is always a lovely osmosis of ideas and ways of seeing that happen when artists work alongside each other.
