Rosebed Street Gallery resides in the heart of Eudlo and is the initiative of local artists, Annie McRae and Maya Carter-Malins.
Their intention is to create a vibrant and inspiring art space that cultivates expression, imagination and originality. The Small Town Small Works show, was a collection of exciting and eclectic treasures from a range of Sunshine Coast artists.
My collection of baskets for this show was called “Days of the Week” and was a forever growing and changing collection, each one had its own title and identity. I used to have a feeling of not being able to achieve anything creative as the imagined outcome always overwhelmed me and as the full time mother of small children, the time I have is very limited and distracted.
Then I began collecting fibre and making, now as my day or week unfolds I find that there is a bigger force that becomes visable when I look back on the week. It’s takes the micro ie a plant stem, discarded plastic or palm frond and makes it into a something much bigger and more noticeable. It’s very satisfying when I focus on process and then look back at a point in time and see the collection of baskets that has grown.
