DISCUSSION

My new manuscript follows directly on from my previous autobiography (The Divine Mistake) about moving my life from Sydney and re-establishing it in New York - the adventures, the challenges, the people, the magic, the trials and exhilaration.

This manuscript, my new autobiography is an example of how to blaze a path not yet cleared.
Told by doctors I would be dead by 40 the only force I feel is to survive doing what I love.
Words and paint are ropes that lift me from “passenger seat” and swing me to a conscious and divine life.
In this manuscript I articulate the process of my painting and my determined life of making them.

MISSION STATEMENT

I am returning to my roots as a painter, where I first discovered my talent, lost my identity/my sense of separation in process - painting portraits. For the next 2 years I am only painting portraits. Abstraction & performance art lend to my feeling immortal now I am mother I feel human, more grounded & more vulnerable than ever and I am pulled to dive in.

I will open an exhibITion MUDBIRD, Dec 9 2015 at TBG (my studio/gallery). I PREPARE the space for my new show & my new direction.

A zen studio to paint commissions in & bring my subjects into & also the option to rent a part of it out as event space gives me a solid base to generate a reliable income for me & my baby.

All the signs look good. I have started all the preliminary work to transform my space and life. I am excited to be re-creating my space to provide a secure future for my son which also allows me to continue making art. Your contribution would enable me to transition to the next phase of my arts practice.
