Studio visitors

This week has been an especially busy one, which began with a real treat. On Monday morning, July 21, Gillian Nix and her colleague Marion Power brought along their Year 11 printmaking students from Huntingtower School, Melbourne for a visit. We have had very few visitors to our relatively new studio in Ballarat; I very much enjoyed meeting everyone, sharing a selection of recent and current work and talking a little about the ideas and influences that direct it.

I was delighted that the students also brought along their work books. It was a privilege to hear about their own ideas, see them expressed through their research and exciting to see the linocuts that resulted from this. I'm really looking forward to seeing what they come up with next.
