About Me

All Life is a rich, wondrous tapestry of interwoven songlines.

All of us are creations.

All of us are creative.

All of us are creators.

In living our lives, we join in the universal song of Life. Our lives are living artworks which are never completed.

He kaikaranga ahau, a weaver of words and pictures.

I use these to portray the invisible essence which binds us, for it is that which fascinates and entrances me. The passage of the moon across a sky of woven clouds draws me; the soft shimmer of light on water, and the sudden call of a bird high in the treetops are treasures for the heart and soul. The slow green sigh of moss on a forest floor or the spaces between raindrops call me to explore, integrate and then celebrate.

In words and pictures.

    Let me Know My journey with the weeds in my garden continued. Eventually, the trail led me to a collection of docks that had conquered my faint attempts at a raised garden bed.
