Sheila's Sheds

Just caught up with one of my favourite people, Gay Hawkes, acclaimed furniture maker and creator. Gay is renowned for her beautiful work that sits in most galleries and collections around Australia and overseas. She is offering an opportunity for people to learn basic furniture-making, using recycled materials.
Gay's work is impressive, as is her commitment to teach others, so it's a fabulous chance to learn from a skilled and inspiring woman. For more details contact Gay at gayhawkes@gmail.com

Tour photographs

Tony Barry getting ready for another show. In good form!

Alwyn Lewis, the writer and poet...looking glamorous!

Guitarist Alan Brown, Double Bass Steve Martin and Composer & Saxophone Laurie Lewis. A bunch of hep cats!

Carol Maney

Working with Carol Maney, an amazingly talented photographer based on the West Coast of Tasmania. Carol has an exhibition of new works that will be on show on the West Coast in February 2013.
Her unique photographs and hand coloured technique combine beautifully to not only capture this harsh environment, but to enhance it.

Poetry and Jazz

Just back from playing 'roadie' on tour with Rhythm, Rhyme and Rhubarb, a touring show that's part of the Tas Regional Arts Touring Menu.
With fantastic musicians, writer Alwyn Lewis and acclaimed actor Tony Barry, it was an absolute delight to trip around the edges of Tasmania with this troupe.
The response from the audiences, especially at Kettering, Triabunna and St Helens was fantastic and we were all made to feel very welcome by the locals.
Another reminder of the joy of working in the arts. Jazz and poetry; a new phenomena for me, but one that I will be seeking out further.
Thanks for the memories, guys!
