Lives Lived

I came across the image of a deserted house in the Appalachian Mountains in the US and, as I usually do with empty houses, wondered what had happened to the original inhabitants and their dreams and lives. So I added an overlay of autumn undergrowth to represent the passing of lives at this house, but […]

Life & Memories (AEDMN#24)

Life & Memories

A few weeks back the vacant paddock beside our apartment was cleared of all rubbish and quite a few mimosa bushes were pulled out. At the time the paddock was bone dry and yellow. Now, with a bit of rain (not a lot), the grass has grown and the mimosa shoots have re-appeared, an affirmation […]

Cosmic Mother (AEDMN23)

November 23, 2015



I played with an earlier, acrylic painting I created back in Australia of Baubo, goddess of laughter, raucous merriment and kicking up your heels. The original painting was bright orange and I really enjoyed playing silly with it. This is the re-worked version – Cosmic Mother, amazing the difference colours make! Below is the original […]

Lens on London

I fiddled with a photo I took of London in 2012 at the Royal Festival Hall on the south bank of the Thames. I had a reunion with about seven girlfriends from my university days – we hadn’t seen each other for nigh-on forty years but it felt like yesterday. A right old gabfest all […]

Waterlily Wonder

This digital art is based on a photo I took of Warrell Creek, on the mid-north coast of New South Wales Australia. “Creek” is a bit of a misnomer as it’s as big as a river, but it’s all relative. The area I lived in is called Northern Rivers, as there six huge, awesome rivers […]

Paradise Parks (AEDN20)

Paradise Parks

This digital art is composed of layers of photographs I took of two parks. The base layer is the entrance to the Nature Park at Bowraville where I used to live on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. Over that is another photograph further into the park. It was established by an Aboriginal elder […]

I Choose Joy, Passion & Courage

I choose joy

Many forces in the world want us to live in fear, on our knees, curtailed in our splendour by¬† false walls of littledom. Stuff ’em. Tell ’em to go take a running jump at themselves because we can do a damned sight better when the fearmongers are ignored! Open hearts defeat closed, fearful minds any […]
