‘Farmyard Friends’

mixed media

40cm x38cm x 2cms




Farmyard Friends is a collaboration. It consists of my small oil on canvas painting embellished by bespoke sculptural frame elements by my husband Geo.


How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

Farmyard Friends mirrors my health and well-being at Moongate Studios where Geo and I live and work on the Surf Coast. The chickens are productive, playful, happily busy in life’s seasonal rhythms and well supported in their feathered family and community, despite all the current COVID-19 restrictions.
