The Old Lock Up
I share my experience of Three weeks at The Old Lock Up, as an Artist in Residence. During this time I revisit the 16-year-old girl/women that I left behind, I look into the shame, fear and guilt that have shut down the memories. There was so much healing for me in taking the quiet time to sit in the residency with myself and to accept all of the shadows that are part of who I am.
Bringing the 6 weeks together was very satisfying, in the new COVID19 regulated way, I had the opportunity to do four artist talks with small groups of six. This was so beautiful, the perfect number to be able to take the time to share the key points of the work that had evolved, and then to have time and space to have a conversation with the small group and speak one on one with most people.
Living a Creative Life
An introduction to a way of living, my story of how I grew up in Australia both in the city and in the bush of the Northern Territory and how I was introduced to art and creativity through traditional indigenous culture. I speak of how this and other early influences have shaped my life and my creative expression of an earth centred spirituality. Looking at busy hands and imagination as ways of opening our intuition and unlocking learning pathways.
