Today is quiet. Just me and Rex. Collages that match my garden and gumboots!
Sometimes the world looks much better upside down ☁️ 🙃

I've almost used up all my offcuts in these scrappy collages. I think the next phase of my #artistresidencyinmotherhood is setting up the new studio space and pondering my next move.
I have been gardening in my pajamas. Not enough coffee had. Hair sideways. Just got the baby today as the little girl is with her Nan. Babies are SO much easier than almost 4 year olds. I feel like I could conquer the world with just one babe at home... but then, I am STILL in my pajamas!
Hide and seek among the roses and weeds! 🌹🌱🌹
So much prettiness! I've never had to maintain such an established and beautiful garden before now... I'm excited for the lessons it holds and the challenges (and slightly daunted 🙄🤔😆)

Very quick scrappy collages in the garden. Like mini sketches but with paper and glue! A very brief interlude from mothering.
Diasmas in my garden! These used to grow in my Nans garden and remind me of her. Today 3 years ago she left this earth. I think of her all the time. She was so special and so funny and so wise. I take these flowers as a sign she is happy for us and that she is gone but not far. 💚
When we decided to move to the Southern Highlands about 7 months ago we kept jokingly singing 'Movin to the country gonna eat a lot o' peaches... ' and low and behold we have a peach tree! 😂🍑🍑🍑🍑
In the garden... pretty things
Peachy skies and murky seas. #mixedmedia #collage
It's been an epic weekend where I'm so grateful for my husband @lampoon and my Mum and Dad for sorting the new house, painting walls, unpacking boxes, letting me nap and being all round amazing. So happy in our new home!
Tree shapes I want to mimic and cut out of paper...

Pondering how I visit The Other Art Fair tomorrow with the kidlets... probably dreaming?!
Love those tufty clouds... and my tribe. Aunt, Sister, Niece, Daughter and my Mum. Beautiful! 💕
From a few weeks ago... No time for art this week. Only time for daydreaming about it and pouring my creativity into the kids and setting up the happy new house.
