Lighten up your spirits with Dell
Dellywood sounds like the land of a thousand rainbows, what kind of
flora and fauna would one discover there?
All kinds, weedy and wonderful. Lots of sleeping creatures and plenty
of moss and rocks. It would be abuzz with bees feasting on unearthly
and gaudy blooms, fruit trees and abundant food gardens.
Which chutney describes you best?
Maybe a bright, sweet and spicy pawpaw and date chutney, the first one
I ever made. I try to make a batch when I visit my parent’s farm in
North Queensland, it reminds me of home, and tastes like golden
tropical goodness on a sandwich. After living in Melbourne for over
ten years, I am excited about pawpaws and sugar bananas in a way I
couldn’t have imagined growing up.
What is your holy trinity of inspiration?
Quiet time, raucous times and most importantly lately, the ever
precious studio time.
Please tell us what is in your exhibition diary.
This year I have a show coming up at West Space in September, and a
group show in Brisbane in October ‘Made II’ at SGAR.
