The swell and the clouds bearing rain across the ocean offered  beautiful lighting, reflections and unusual compositions on Marcus Beach this morning.

While Jimmy the poodle and I walked, the Turtle Watch team worked further down the coast, re-locating eggs from a Logger Head turtle’s nest, to keep them safe from water inundation. That’s one hundred and twenty-three eggs that will now have a chance to hatch, and boost the numbers of this endangered species.


Expanding Horizons

Finalists Brisbane Rotary Art Spectacular 2017


The Marcus Beach Artisans met today to start planning our Exhibition called Horizons. It’s not until April 2018 but we are all hard at work. Lee’s signature beach paintings – one of which was highly commended in a recent Brisbane art show – will sit alongside other works that have water as their subject.  Kris is going large with one of her beautiful free flowing works, and Julie has some new photographic surprises. Michael’s ceramic sculptures are out of this world in a way that will be revealed on the night. I’m doing a whole new series, expanding my horizons too by experimenting with different techniques.
