BEHIND THE SCENES WITH GLORIA
It was my absolute pleasure to meet the lovely Gloria who drove all the way from Wollongong for a photoshoot in January. Gloria was awarded Barnardos mother of the year award in 2014 for the courage, strength and support she shared during her beautiful daughter’s battle with brain cancer that sadly Cass lost in 2013. Gloria’s bravery is astonishing, and she is blessed to have a supportive family and a young grandchild with another on the way, that helps keep her positive.
BEHIND THE SCENES
I am delighted that Megan wanted to be part of my portrait series, and I knew from the start that the process would be smooth sailing. I was, and am still emerging from the other side of my own three month journey through a massive creative block – which, to someone who used to feeling creative, feels like a prolonged injury that I am recovering from.
THE MAKING OF..
Meet this gorgeous flightless bird who really, really wants to fly. Her common name is the Flightless Orange Toed Green Billed Pootoo. Very social creatures that are emotionally dependent on their mother for the first ten years of life. If they become separated from her, they will try to bond with the next living creature they see. This young Pootoo, sadly, lost her way home, and is now attempting to find a new mother in the form of the young humans she has identified in the village below.
