My wondrous muse
My wonderful world
You seem distant this time
I scribble in vain
But you do not appear
I feel lost to you
Or perhaps you are to me?
I am pacified with dribble
Distracted by nonsense
I rush to your side
You are gone when I arrive
In this fleeting time
I grapple to find a space
Just one poetic verse
I feel it should be said
I feel it should be done
I feel until I am numb
The words escape again
As despair becomes my companion
Together we march in monotony
I can only be in one place at a time
Still I get caught up in a dream
The tree presents nature as the muse, a place from where the imagination can run wild and free, the spark of creativity. The tree is bare and fragile as it becomes harder to make a connection to nature in the modern world but it still stands defiant. The rectangle is a reminder of writing as a form of art to communicate our stories. Both can get lost or seem small and insignificant until the time is given to nurture and find them.
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.
