Beautiful Lloyd with “Ria” the curvy whale tail. Apparently Lloyd is gorgeous soul and you can see this in his beaming smile. Ria was my grandmothers preferred name. Her real name was Iris. Both my maternal grandparents came over from England after the Second World War. Refugees. No money, 3 babies and broken. They shared a small house with another Air Force Family in Christchurch New Zealand, until they got on their feet. The happy piece of this story is when my Grandfather returned to London some 25 years later to receive his medal from the Queen Mother for service in @battle_of_britain_ he went via Singapore. This was a big deal in our family. Not only the royal award but overseas travel!! I remember how much he loved Singapore and him quietly describing what he had seen, smelt, eaten, experienced. He loved its cleanliness and order. He was a fastidious man. A true gentleman. This is why I was so thrilled to be part of @larascolarigallery @affordableartfairsg in beautiful Singapore. I hope to visit one day and enjoy what my Grandfather appreciated. Vale Arthur William Canham.๐Ÿ’™ Note the stunning painting by @larascolarigallery behind Lloyd๐Ÿ’™ . . . #australianart  #sculpture  #singapore  #family #beautifulsouls  #contemporaryart  #larascolarigallery #gratitude

Singapore you have been divine and oh so  generous. 8 of my 9 pieces finding new homes!!!!! All down to @larascolarigallery. When Lara asked me to be part of her exhibition at the @affordableartfairsg I was thrilled and, well very nervous. Taking the work Overseas’s and being a part of such a huge production was just a lil bit overwhelming for me. All new territory. @larascolarigallery knows her stuff. She had complete confidence in me and her gallery.  Lara is tireless in her professional work as a beautiful figurative artist and gallery owner. Thank you so much Singapore and Lara. I’m thrilled beyond belief๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ’ซ . . . . #affordableartfairsg #contemporaryart  #singapore #figurativeart #larascolarigallery  #sculpture  #clay  #interiordesign  #healinghands  #whales #sydneyart #australianart

This little lovely is going to a lady, site unseen! I hope she loves the feel as well as the look.  No glazes are used in my non-functional pieces. Light washes of paints, inks, waxes and buffing. The wooden stems are from the garden. Soaked, sanded and waxed. (I loved woodwork at school!).๐Ÿ . . . #pears #sculptures #clay #handmade #australianart #contemporaryart

Work is easy on a Sunday when you love what you do. So bloody lucky to be able to do this from home. No driving, no dramas (except when I think the local goanna is behind me...was just the brush turkey. No bother๐Ÿ˜‰). Packing and pricing for Open Studios next Saturday Oct 19th at George’s Heights Artists Precinct.๐Ÿ’š . . . #art #sculptures #australianartist #clay #artistsoninstagram #contemporaryart #pittwater
