ABOUT "THE BLUE LADY STUDIO"

Why THE BLUE LADY?

Twenty Five years ago a student gifted to the studio a full size sculpture of a BLUE LADY.  This travelled from the farm studio to the Woodend studio, and unfortunately crumbled to dust last year in the extremes of cold and heat.  I had been patching and supporting for some years - but like us all, she was impermanent.

 

 In every generation of our family there has been healers, artists, medicine women and users of the tarot and pendulum.  I am the one with this gift in this Generation and both of my children have it - although they rarely consciously use it. It is always there.

 

However - I think I am the only one who (more than thirty years ago), has embraced the world of the TATTOO and have I have specialised in HAND-POKED Tattoos, which are as close as I can get to the world of Scientific Illustration.  I love growing and using herbs.. and making little smoking pipes.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME AT THE STUDIO (and zoom) 

We welcome everyone, from newcomers, beginners, and people have taken the alternative path through self expression

and healing for may years

We will introduce you to all aspects of dowsing, and making..

 All meditative, all spiritual, all ART - ESPECIALLY Tattoos.

My art expresses itself at the present in MINIATURE PAINTINGS,  and ART DARNING - Taking items that would otherwise have been discarded and making them beautiful again.  A darn is A BADGE OF HONOUR for the garment, and attests to the fact that you love it enough to give it a second life.

For years I worked in some of the most prestigious institutions in the world - THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTE OF NATURAL HISTORY in Washington. DC. (USA) the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, TTHE STEINHARDT AQUARIUM, THE AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM (Melbourne), 

and so on... (See the CV).  I have never stopped drawing....

My WORK 

If you look at the blog and the shop (when I have new stock - I am sold out)

you will see that I am painting tiny images on TeaBags.  

I love the work and will be doing it every day in order to catch up with my customers...
