About Me

Central Australia is my home. I live in a town surrounded by some of the oldest mountain ranges, rocks and trees on this earth.

I ride a bike around this flat old town. I like to cook soba noodles with pumpkin, umeboshi plum vinegar and vegetables from my garden in my outdoor kitchen.

Dancing and moving is one of my main interests, particularly the art of butoh.

Favorite Music

Mount Eerie (aka the Microphones) is my tender favourite. He being a music maker who likes to ponder existential and nature themes

Mum, Bjork, Yo La Tengo, the Dirty Three, a Hawk and a Hacksaw, New Buffalo, Django Reinhardt, are other favourites.

Electronic mish mash craziness by the likes of folk like Spoonbill also tweak my neurons in a pleasing way

Favorite Books

Authors I love include: Franz Kafka, AS Byatt, Peter Matthiessen, Wallace Stevens (ok, I know he is a poet), Enid Blyton...

Favorite Crafts

I'm an art and crafter with a bit of a thing for hand written letters and anything that comes in the post that is made with a bit o' love.

origami envelopes, coloured pencils, fine rubber stamps, fine paper, coloured string, old maps... they're some things I like to create mail with...

Favourite Drinks

fine fruit liqueurs, white tea, cardamon coffee, spirulina smoothies, rain water, beetroot and ginger juice

Comment: Thanks so much for the postcard and for the description of where you were and what was going on around you in the cafe you were in, I could imagine the scene in my mind. You asked what kind of art I enjoy, in brief I enjoy works by, Monet, Kahlo, Dali, O'Keeffe, and many more. Thanks for asking! :-)

Comment: very disappointed by what you sent, ATC's are supposed to be 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches...you sent something that was 2.75 inches by 3.6 inches, isn't even all the way filled in, and is just a zentangle with no flower/garden theme...here is part of the requirements...(Usually zentangles are just doodles, but I would like for you to incorporate somesort of garden theme into it. Any colors are acceptable and you can even use multiple colors! The requirements are standard ATC size, botanical/flower/garden theme incorporated, single or multi-colored and of course, lots of love! ).... you wrote on the inside of the envelope that you were rushing due to being on holiday, maybe you shouldn't have signed up for this swap if you could not devote the time or energy to do a quality swap...you also mailed it after the swap deadline, even though you marked it sent on 3/30/2010
