Creating brighter futures

Make For Good mini paintings * click on the photo to see them on Etsy *

I created these bright little paintings for this year’s Make For Good charity fundraiser which officially launched this week. Etsy sellers from around Australia and New Zealand have made items reflecting the ‘Creating Brighter Futures’ theme and are donating a minimum of 20% towards Plan International Australia’s ‘Because I am a Girl’ campaign, raising funds to support women and girls in developing communities around the world.

To learn more about this project, please go to www.etsy.me/makeforgood
Make For Good 2016 runs until December 19th @etsyau @plan_australia

‘Smoke Without Fire’ is a little do-over canvas that sat in a corner of the studio for ages before I decided to have another go at it. It turned out okay this time, so I’ve listed it on Etsy. It comes with the little wooden display easel shown in the photo.

On this road to heaven

Blackout poem #11

Blackout poem #11

“There was very little traffic
on this road to heaven.
He had some trouble on the way.
The past always lurked as he drove this road,
more real than the things in plain view.”
