in the sand

Ever since I was a small boy I have loved walking thru the bush or along the beach collecting presents from nature that catch my eye, arranging them on the ground until I like the composition and sometimes photographing them but then leaving them behind…

Today trying something new without over thinking / styling things

Here’s my encaustic tile collection “ New Paradise” in the sand  available from Di Lorenzo tiles 

sand and sticks

Found on our afternoon beach walk, these sticks in the sand, all creativity no styling required

Whaley good time

Whaley good weekend!

 

small changes

lets get woke!

Small change can actually make big change

Im starting to think no one really cares…

We all should care! and try to be better humans for the planet

Heres a few ways I’m trying to make a difference…

no plastic takeaway containers

compostable dog (poo) bags from compost-a-pak

no need to put your rubbish in plastic bags put it straight into the bin

keeping reusable bags in the car for the supermarket

buying fresh produce not in plastic

plastic container free shampoo bars from lush

avoiding the take away coffee cups – either sit down, use a travel cup or have coffee at home – try Sipp Instant

part time vegan eating way less red meats and dairy ( I have replaced cows milk with coconut milk) I’m not sure how this will play out maybe eventually full-time… try Herbidoor or Brown Paper eats for vegan/vegetarian meals

solar powered (my home/studio is thanks top an awesome land lord)

no palm oils check the labels

reducing waste

buying less – having less stuff

recycling

reusing

reducing

walking (helps having g a cute dog) and riding my bike more

my next project my own vegetable garden – excited to begin growing my own vegetables and herbs and maybe some fruit

no plastic bags – duh! not even those stupid durable (reusable) ones replacing simple use plastic bags

no plastic straws – a smoothie, juice or cocktail just doesn’t need one and  if you really do need one use a metal or glass one

no cling wrap ( I reuse jars instead)

I would love to hear more ways you carte making a change! tag me on Instagram

 

 

 

 

Nature art work shop

You may have spotted on Instragram last Thursday and Friday that I attended the inaugural creative workshop at River Hawk Ranch an immersion into art and nature with Dominique Sutton 

To say the workshop was amazing is an understatement , a couple, of days deep in art and nature on a beautiful property by the river in Brunswick heads was magical.

We foraged for materials and tools, painted by the river and in the new studio at River Hawk

Lucky there is going to be more click here to see more and to find out about other workshops

perfection

This morning I woke up to this – yes this is un-styled, I did request Sophia to sit there and she obliged…

Often we can be consumed with making everything in our lives and homes perfect – the truth is perfection doesn’t exist and that imperfections make things truly beautiful

Let your life and home evolve and g ive yourself a break, relax and enjoy the beauty of real life

simple things

Simple things like inexpensive flowers at home always make me smile go on treat yourself you deserve it!

In bed with Sheridan

Everyone knows Im a fan of all shades of blue, I love the ocean it inspires me everyday, always.

Styling your home should be fun and not complicated – be confident in your own style and make your place great!

With the change of seasons (winter is coming) it’s the perfect time to update your bedroom, make it calm and cosy (always) nothing too difficult just a fresh set of sheets and a new quilt cover ( I selected the Hewett in denim ) and a brand new art work ( I selected Lorette Framed Canvas ) is all it takes for an easy update.

Sweet dreams in a serene bedroom with ocean inspired hues…
