Earth Day

I created this poster for Earth Day from an acrylic painting I made in Australia. It has paper bark, sunstone chips and pheasant coucal feathers (the pheasant coucal is a member of the cuckoo family but builds its own nest and rears its own young). The web represents creation and the songlines which link us … More Earth Day

Another one of my favourite stones is a piece of raw pink and white calcite which I came across in a small shop in Uki (pron. youkiy) in the far north of New South Wales.
