It was lovely to be approached before Christmas by our local Tourist News magazine to do a write up on Wrendale Wildlife Studio.  They really capture well all the experiences on offer at my studio, from sketching workshops to visiting me at my studio. Here’s the page – and you can click here to look through the rest of the magazine online, which profiles great attractions and businesses here in the Yarra Valley.

I’m also just completing a pet portrait I was commissioned to do, and loading up three new paintings I completed over the Christmas break.  It’s lovely being busy and with my summer sketching workshops at Healesville Sanctuary and painting workshop at Crumbz Craft on Sunday 12 February, it’ll be Easter before we know it!!
