Nowadays to walk down Regent Street in Steiglitz is like walking amongst ghosts. Once the towns business and social centre, it is now a dirt track with few buildings remaining. As other towns in the region are practically exploding at the seams with people seeking the charm of country life, the population of Steiglitz remains at 7- a number represented throughout this work.
Tony has always been keen on building cubby houses. With a background in sculpture, prop making and design, it seemed natural that all these things would come together in a tiny house. Tony is a university lecturer by day and tiny house builder/sculptor by night.
I have always loved wool and started to spin when my girls were small. I progressed to weaving and felting after joining the Geelong Handweavers and Spinners Guild.
I have been fortunate in having the opportunity to exhibit samples of my work at local exhibitions, Geelong and Bendigo Shows and to have been a section winner at the Scarf Festival at the Geelong Wool Museum.
I have been drawing all my life and received honours and awards during my school years. I sold my first painting, a watercolour at 16.
About four years ago I had my first formal lessons in soft pastels and haven’t looked back, winning an award at the Bannockburn Art Show in 2015.
I also love acrylics for a slightly abstract style.
Over the last eight or so years I have been enjoying my card making for family and friends. The craft is enjoyable, soothing, satisfying and a wonderful way to socialise and meet new people. It is a craft that can be done at home as well as being easily transportable to other crafting venues around Victoria and even aboard a crafting cruise!
