"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home" (Twyla Tharp)

Growing up ...

I spent my childhood growing up on a 4,000 acre wheat and sheep farm in Western Australia. The region was prone to drought and a difficult environment for farming at the mercy of inconsistent rainfall. The different seasons bought a constantly changing backdrop - from the harsh dry scene in this photo to the most utterly breathtaking vision of wildflowers in abundance which WA is now famous for. I was entranced by nature for as long as I can remember - quite happy to be on my own and observing the ever changing world around me. The country is a wonderful place to grow up and encourages a strong connection to the environment.
