Since arriving in Australia (too many years ago now to count) I have always been fascinated by the colours and shapes of our fabulous gum leaves. This alphabet gives me the chance to play with those shapes, as well as indulging my fondness for painting. This alphabet is already complete, and has been put together as a double sided concertina book. The theory here, is that I will now have the time to complete the 26 miniatures that will go with Alphabet number 1. Will see just how far that gets, and if I am true to my word, then that one can be shown in it's entirety, (rather than just the Jacob's Ladders) by the end of the year.


  1. Just fabulous - I love the leaves and how they form the letters. Exquisite!

  2. I cańt find work to express how I admire this work ! Leaves are wonderful and the way you use them is just ... Well I cańt find words ...

  3. Fabulous idea and execution. And beautiful.
