When the day is grey
Take heart that
The rain will come
And the garden will grow
It has always been this way
Since the beginning of time
That these times will pass
So new seeds will sprout
Stronger and more resilient
There is peace in this knowing
That these times of turmoil
Can make tomorrow a brighter day
If you will stay
The ground appears harsh and barren giving the feeling that no matter how hard one tries nothing will be produced, or so it may seem. The grey clouds above appear not as a threat but as a sign of fertility (growth) being returned by the rain. It is about growth, perspective, time and the importance of shared information. Passing on our stories to provide a guiding light of wisdom. This light is emphasised in the bright red stroke symbolising the edge of a piece of paper, a reminder that poetry is about passing on our information .
The art that accompanies my poetry is a type of abstract expression of the theme and/or emotion that the poem conveys. I do not use paint brushes instead I collect leaves, bark, stones, flowers, seeds or whatever interesting shape I find on a walk out in nature or in my garden, then I dip them in the paint to discover different patterns, I also use artist palette knives to enhance these shapes.
As I am painting through a process of experimentation it does not always turn out the way I imagine so I must re-imagine persisting through trial and error. The final art piece may then be the accumulation of three or four attempts painted over each other. However it is the “mistakes” that are ultimately the guiding light that contribute to the formation of the end result.
I take my inspiration from observing the world around me and I learn through the process of experimentation. For me to experiment is to discover.

Sparrow eco frames are lovingly crafted in house from locally sourced salvaged hardwood timber. Each artisan frame has subtle differences making each frame a truly unique specialty item. All natural picture frames are lightly polished with our own furniture blend beeswax to further protect and enhance the grain of the timber.
Also note timber colour, grooves, knots and holes vary with each picture frame due to the nature of recycled timber. See below for the type of frame you will receive.
Please note: Some of our gallery images feature frames with oiled finishes as well as a grey style finish. Images above show a range of the type of frame you should expect.
