Happy To Be Here Exhibition 2016

Header image for "Happy to be Here exhibition" contains 3 images. On the left is Tangerine Meg apparently balancing on the old Police Station steps, the middle image is "Spring Feet", a hand watercoloured lino print, the image on the right is an open exhibition catalogue held open by a hand, and featuring the "Happy to be here" exhibition entry

Wow! That went by in a flurry – my exhibition, long planned and worked for, is now closed! I’ll leave this page up for a while in case people want to read about it. Soon I’ll put any last un-sold works in galleries, stockists and have them available at market stalls.

Woot! I’m having my first solo art exhibition in over 20 years at Goolwa, South Australia this Spring. Here’s the catalogue paragraph:

“Radiant colour or a few deep breaths with nature are two things that leave me grateful and magically recharged.

Even in the confines of a suburban garden are microcosms of life and beauty. I am ‘specially drawn to the luxuriant generosity of nasturtiums in bloom as well as the bright juiciness of laden fruit trees. To transform into a jungle? Just add a cat!

My artwork is a journal of beauty and joy found in everyday moments. A gifted embroidered bag or vegetables from the Farmers Market, famous art, stripy socks or a funky find from an op shop are equally inspiring. (Colour and patterns light me up! You too?)

I tell my story with either pen drawing or limited edition lino block printing combined into intimate, vibrant watercolour works”
