This week I had a lovely but cold short break in Melbourne, and took some photos of what inspired my arty side, which included AC/DC Lane, the Zine exhibition at the State Library, and sketching time at the Royal Botanic Gardens. The highlight for me though was the Wallace and Gromit exhibition and once Ive […]
Last week we ventured along the Great Ocean Road. On the road towards Cape Otway Lighthouse must be one of the best locations to spot koalas – there was almost one on every tree! But the downside is that they are eating their way out of their habitat as trees were nearly bare of leaves. But […]
This is straight out of my sketchbook from one of our latest camping holidays in Noosa. We were pitched up near the river, and one day we were graced with a pelican swimming around.

We saw humpback whales, turtles, bottlenose dolphins and manta rays!! So, as always, the sketchbook came with me […]

On our first evening we were visited by two very cute little green tree frogs. They were sat on the outside window ledge, and whenever a […]
Being an Australian nature lover I was keenly looking everywhere for anything. I’d obviously been Canberra-ised thinking that all city’s must have kangaroos hopping across the roads, and flocks of galahs and cockatoos on street corners, but not Queensland, you have to search just a little bit harder through the sprawling city life…As we were […]
