Inspired by an old dictionary

In November 2014 my lovely husband gave me an India Paper Edition of Webster’s New International Dictionary of the English Language published in 1919. It spurned the Dictionary Project, a series of images inspired by the words and definitions contained in the impossibly thin pages of this beautiful old book. The latest entry is inspired… Continue reading Inspired by an old dictionary

Barek Art Timelapse

One of the really exciting things about the move away from full-time professional photography has been the way it's prompted me to plan and create things without thinking about how I might be able to use them to encourage bookings. Now I'm doing work purely because I want to, which is liberating. It's also encouraging… Continue reading Barek Art Timelapse

Melbourne

I have a very dear friend who's planning to move interstate soon. She seems to be happily immersing herself in images related to her soon to be new home, so I thought I'd contribute.

Beautiful Dancer.

From the Sculptors Queensland Annual Exhibition at Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens. The sculpture is Giselle (2011) by Dawn Conn of Ruby and Iris. I've been looking longingly at the pieces in her Etsy shop for awhile now. I know it's only a matter of time before I purchase one.
