Endings and New Beginnings

This is the final blog post for the workroom. I will continue to do a monthly newsletter and keep the exhibition, shop and workshop updated.

However, in a world of ever-increasing data overload, I am taking the step to simplify both my and your life and stop blogging.

When I started this blog, I was just beginning the journey of creative artist, my children were small and the breaths between mothering were small. The blog was a way to be accountable for my creative practice and gave me an audience.

Now, as I have become more confident, I feel our society is changing. […]

Optimistic Activism…. Can a Weed be a Wildflower?

Optimistic Activism…. Inspiration to live this life.

Working as an artist with plants has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of awesome people and some pretty special plants too. On the 2nd May at 5.30pm Wild Flower/Women II will be opening at the Caloundra Regional Gallery, Qld. I was invited to be one of the artists that explore Kathleen McArthur’s work and create my own response.

For those that haven’t heard of Kathleen, she was a women who lived on the Sunshine Coast, and with her good friend (poet) Judith Wright created […]

E. Tereticornis – Residency March 2017 – Love and Decay

Spending this much time with one tree is becoming challenging, some days I love the fact that I have a something to go to, something that holds me, grounds me, listens to me, shares space with me. Other days when I think of all the things I haven’t done, the collections piled high on spaces throughout my studio, I see the impermanence of it all. I wonder why did I ever start this? Why didn’t I drive straight by the fallen tree without a second thought? Why is it so important that I spend this time working with a tree? […]

E. Tereticornis – Residency February 2017 – Place

When the tree fell, I’d been looking for a plant to work with. I had just finished a body of work ‘Notions of an ordinary yarn’ and part of that had been an investigation into how to use some of the local fibres to make string.

This was an awesome way to really get to know a plant, so I decided to take just one plant and study that for my next body of work. Working out which plant to choose was hard,  I toyed with ideas of residencies at Botanical Gardens or places of significance. Then I thought about the […]

E. Teriticornis – Watching it Grow

The year has begun and it’s time for a bit of reflection before I leap headfirst into the next cycle of creativity and life. What began as a fallen tree, that I’ve become the custodian of has lead me on a journey of learning, patience, new connections and sharing. Tree is now live and the community unfolds online, workshops, pop up exhibitions, stories of trees and inspiration, engaging people to connect with nature. Observing the resilillance and teachers that we can find in our own places.  I’ve loved developing the first series of workshops, they are about creating sensory maps […]

Living Locally

Eumundi Green Issue 241 April 13 2016

The Beautiful thing about living in a community is the support that surrounds you. Here on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland we are surrounded by creative people, and opportunities to show our work. And by a serendipitous series of events, I was invited to show my work at Core Health Chiropractors (Dr Mal Atkins) in his new practice that opened at 1 Myall Street Cooroy, and now this signature piece is on the front cover of the Eumundi Green. Love how the world works sometimes.

The zines ‘Lovingly Interrupted’ & ‘Expressions of Love II’ were created to accompany an exhibition of the work of Anne Harris and Kim Schoenberger. Since the exhibition, the zine has taken a life of its own, becoming a new way for Harris to share her voice and her unique pieces of slow-art with the world. Upasana Papadopoulos spoke to Harris about the exhibition, lessons learned from zine-making and the evolution of her work.

Notions of an Ordinary Yarn – Exhibition

OFFICIAL OPENING: Friday 23rd October at 6pm All Welcome

DATES: 23rd October to 6th December 2015

Noosa Regional Gallery, Pelican Street, Tewantin, Qld, Australia

The story of the everyday fascinates me, I find beauty and rhythm in my surroundings and ways to use this to record and tell the stories. As art has from the beginning of time, told the stories before me. I use the places and people as inspiration, raising the status and acknowledging the ordinary lives of the everyday.

I choose to use craft based practices, I find this helps make direct links between process and people. The layers […]

50 Days with a Cotton Tree – Hibiscus tiliaceus

An excerpt from my exhibition The Notion of an Ordinary Yarn

Noosa Regional, Queensland, Australia  22nd October to 6th December 2015

The journey to make string has taught me so much about being with plants, and the absorption of process. I have delved into string, cordage, twine a number of times in the last few years. It is a subject that seems to repeat itself in fibre weaving classes. There are many techniques and twists so to speak, and string is as old as civilization, so I guess it goes to prove it is the simple things in […]
