Climate Resilience Shadow Box of treasures.
This art work is full of small treasures underlying the importance of the Climate Resilience message.
We need to protect our natural environment.
The uniqueness and strength of the local bush is, I believe, a joy to share with others. If left undisturbed, it will continue to thrive and be around for our children and our children’s children.
This underlying concept is what motivates me to create my art.
What can you do?
- Research what plants can and can’t be grown in your own garden without the need for lots of water.
- In those challenging-hard-to-manage-parts of your garden it is better to grow local native plants that have thrived through the years of winter frosts and extreme heat we get here in Bendigo.
- Some of these plants have tiny flowers, yet they produce flowers and fruit for birds and insects to feed on when there may be little else available.
- It is worth taking the time to seek out these native plan
Just wanted to share a current project I am working on featuring my love of Australian native flora and fauna.
Long way before it is complete…
As well as a variety of textile art works, I now have miniature pieces for sale.
Today I delivered this beautiful dome artwork to BUDA.
A definite one only unique work featuring our local native flora.
Exclusively for sale at BUDA.
I have been wanting to make these for a while.
Having a cricut makes cutting the paper inserts a breeze, however I had to buy the wooden blanks as they are too thick for my machine.
I have decorated one with a piece of my Australian floral fabric, and the other is a colour transfer from my range of floral photographs.
They are 3 inches (7.62 cm) square.
I look forward to using them in the field when I find a flower to press and research.
I am delighted with my first wool scarf that I sewed over the weekend using the wool challis printed for me by @parlourprinting.
I created the design from my own photography of pincushion hakeas and bottlebrush from my garden as well as a waratah from a bouquet from my son.
It is lovely and soft and feels divine!
