I’m an Australian writer whose stories have appeared in many literary magazines and featured in the line-ups of competitions. My two novels: This Too Shall Pass and Down to the River both published by Sleeper Publishing are available online through Amazon. Here, however, I’ll be writing about art that I love. Of course, I care about a lot of things: the planet, its animals (all of us) and trees (all its flora, actually). But I do love art and that’s what I’m going to be writing about here.
