Boodjamulla National Park which encompasses and the Riversleigh World Heritage Site, is a extraordinary place. I am planning a trip of a few weeks in winter 2017.
I went to Ian's art workshop when I was 10 years old. I worked with for 20 years on hand off, on art and festival projects. Here are some images of Ian's procession through Yungaburra, his town.
I went Walton Bridge Reserve, at The Gap for family portrait location recce.
Found great location and light for the shoot but there was a group 6 Indian Minor swooping and splashing at speed.
Loani Prior and my Portraits of a Tea Cosy touring exhibition that celebrates stories about the humble, but often-quirky, tea cosy. Inspired by the revival of the 'handmade' Portraits of a Tea Cosy brings together social history, craft, photography and sculpture using the humble tea cosy as a vessel to evoke nostalgic memories and deep familial love.
Portraits of a Tea Cosy is a travelling exhibition developed by Warwick Art Gallery and toured by Museum and Gallery Service Queensland.
