What would you say
if these were the last
words to pass between
the last moments to share
before everything changed
take these moments with care
for there are things
that we cannot know
precious moments pass quickly
into the memories
of either regrets
or cherished times,
so take the time
bite the tongue
embrace the heart
leave it on a note
that will play
sweetly for many
years to come
for you may not
know this will be…
The art is messy it even bleeds at times as we don’t always get it right but we do have the power to choose our words carefully and communicate love over hate. It is partly inspired from the philosophy that before we speak we should ask ourselves 1. Is it true? 2. Is it necessary? 3. Is it kind? The heart is deliberately not perfect because we can never be that, however we can be thoughtful and this transmits its own beauty.
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.
