The Bird cage in the Darwin Botanical Gardens is a popular place to go with children. It has a very zen aspect to it when you are alone there. The bright green of the cage contrasting with the fallen tree which is utilised in the design, interests my facination mixing organic with man made shapes. I’m currently experimenting with colour schemes and brush.

There they go, that pair of scrubfowl, messing up my garden…!
Wait, is that their mound? You’re kidding! Its the size of my car!! Are they really chasing away their own young, and why are they screeching at them so loudly? And why in the middle of the night?! Why do they need to dig such a huge hole with those giant orange feet in the middle of my veggie patch? Why are they so indifferent to my efforts to make things nice?? Why???
Because they are native to this place. Indifferent to me, my garden, my borders, my rules… simply doing their own thing. On a land which after all used to be all theirs. Let them be.
Here is my loving tribute to the scrubfowl in all their messy, loyal, head bobbing, hesitant, natural, naughty, indignant, imperious, sleek, cheeky, noisy, beauty. ARGLE ARGLE ARRRRRK! ( …not that they care)

This work explores the colours and atmosphere of the water and human interaction within it.
There is nothing more freeing than jumping in to open water, a brief moment of flying through the air and having zero gravity when you hit the water. I want to capture a sense of movement and playfulness in the figures jumping through the water full of flecks of sunlit colour.

Dogs have their own view on the world. I played with colour, fantasy and realism. I tried to capture that moment after a big walk when the dog is too puffed even chase a butterfly.
