  • Great motion in this pic, and in the broader pic which saw a friend transcend her cow phobia of 25 yrs -after 2 farm visits! :D
    Kicking phobia
  • I love the way we have here contrasting elements in Kristie's soft arms and hands, with open horns, unconventionally soft also.

  • Fun with broom

  • Kristie and 'Billy Dixon' at calm, close range, rather than the open range of wild west.

About Me

Miri Maher was Prague born, Czechoslovakia, and is currently cast as a self-taught artist in the Trawool Valley, Victoria. 2015 sees her debut with a poetry exhibition as part of the Golden Plains Arts Trail. largely to an aphoristic nature, Miri's work streams between beats of bush, from it’s championing’s to many challenges. Themes concerning art, mental illness and family also come to the fore, where Miri is currently working to present her first published collection, further extending to creative and coaching retreats at the transformative property, shared with a docile Hereford herd and multitude of riparian wildlife.
When metaphor is employed in it’s practice, Poetry is practical, because it picks up on things that are perhaps otherwise just lying around, making new and sometime better use of them, fixing items/experiences together while they still hold to their former faces, without even their wear or tear! ‘A farmer’, that I am sometimes, must be a practical person or else they are just ‘afar’ in a land that renders unforgiving. To be the most practical, one must know how to present the most at play –to be able to first find the plethora of potential parts; options applied in planned problem solving, ingenuity.

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.

Painting

North Trail

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.
