I just love the trees in this area, I must have taken 100's of photos from different angle of various contorted trees, all expressing themselves with dramatic poses.

I was visiting a friend in the blue mountains because I had skills she needed, I was helping erect a fence for the chickens.

I thought I’d try something new and brighten peoples day by giving a few of my artworks and cards away over the next few months of lockdown and isolation.

The weather was very windy which made painting outdoors quite difficult and people loved to stop by and have a chat, which I really enjoyed.

Painting out doors has its advantages and disadvantages but what I found was people loved to stop by and see what I was doing.

Well these three finches were certainly spread over Australia and photographed over a span of 4years of traveling and camping holidays.

I'm loving the thin brush with the really long bristles for painting long smooth strokes found in grass and twigs.

The bower bird builds its nest out of twigs and collects anything it can find that has shades of blue.

The red backed wren was photographed at Australia Zoo last year when I was walking around Bindi Island.

My Aunt was visiting so we decide to have a look for turtle tracks on the beach. We soon found plenty of tracks on the beach from the night before, so...

Just after I photographed this wombat at Australia Zoo, he came racing down the hill to a gate. I thought he was going to be fed by his speed, to my...

While I was camping at Biloela, I was busily setting up my swag tent and hammering in the tent pegs, when I spotted some movement in the field next to me.

I must have followed this guy around the creek for a good 10mins trying to get some nice shots.
