Public Art and Fairy Penguins



Been working on a public art project with the divine Victoria Nelson, my art teacher, and a very special friend....


the sculpture will consist of 3 large bronze panels, on a peice of granite, to be placed just outside Grantville, Victoria Australia.
I felt proud to be part of this process, ...


(my job was to smooth the lumps out!)



Miss Vic has been a dedicated islander on Phillip Island for over 30 years, not only in the Arts and teaching, but everywhere... from shearing sheep, and working at the tip to nurturing wildlife, and saving shearwater birds, to protecting our most precious treasure here on the island... the fairy penguins. ....


Vic has now relocated to another coastal town, and i will miss her dearly.


Bye Vic, thankyou for EVERYTHING you taught me.
