When I began researching miniature art galleries I did not know about this particular space in Boston USA.

That is the beauty of research the more you do the more you discover, I hope you find this as interesting as I do.

Having made one small gallery, I am now developing a larger space for an exhibition in October. I hope it will be completed by then! Who would’ve thought there’s just so much work in creating miniature art.

Bendigo bush paper art

Summer before Covid 19.

Summer is my paper making time. This piece was created in a more innocent time. It reflects the beauty of the Australian bush, and is too nice to hidden away, hence my decision to frame it

Size is 10 cm by 15cm plus frame.

It is for sale if you would like a piece of summer on your wall or desk.

While researching miniature art I found this article. It gives an added depth to miniature as an artform.

Gorgeous native birds in our backyard


I had to be quick and grab the first camera that came to hand today when these birds came to feed on the pink Correa in our back yard.

The small one is a Silvereye which is quite a flighty little bird to photograph.

The yellow tailed New Holland Honeyeater was more forgiving of me and my camera and happily fed while I shot several images.

Bendigo what I did last week, week 13


I am gobsmacked by the talent displayed this week.

There has been such a diverse array of art over the last 13 weeks.

Thank you to the team at Creative Community, City of Greater Bendigo for this initiative and ability to peak into the studios of our creatives in Bendigo.

Bendigo wax flower opens early with gorgeous sundews

Our first sighting of the Bendigo Wax in the wild. Flowering earlier than normal, it was a delight to see. As were the sundews glistening in the sun.
