Working in series,these little “picasso fish” were created from Tasmania’s Mercury newspaper and posted off to various mail artists and assembling book projects to “swim” through the postal system, or some were wrapped in newspaper envelopes with “chips”from old cookery books. Making multiples like this is fun as one idea leads to another and the work feels more like play, or a series of experiments. Sadly one recipient, the Australian artist Richard Larter “Dick” had passed away.

English/Aussie Visual Artist based in the historic town of York, in the Wheatbelt of Western Australia. I've been described as a "painter with a fluid approach". So although painting and drawing are my first language so to speak, i enjoy creating film photograph,textiles,visual poetry and even the occasional sound or performance project. Really i feel the medium needs be the best to express the idea. Much of my work is collaborative in the form of assembling books where each artist contributes an art work/page which is then bound. Also mail art which is often exhibited as an egalitarian installation. I also do some design work for sale via Red Bubble, Saatchi Art sites and local galleries.
