Late last year the mysterious Moth Women finally returned to their place of origin after an extensive tour with the Geelong Gallery/NETS Victoria exhibition The enchanted forest - new gothic story tellers during 2008-2009. We have only recently unpacked them and displayed them in a new hang, along with some newer members of the growing Moth Women community.

Pictured below this is a recent studio still life, featuring painted papier mache moth masks completed to date.

On Friday afternoon, February 26, we were also delighted to welcome back to the studio two of our favourite people and artists, Paul Compton and Priscilla Ambrosini.

A plan cabinet for the studio

This beautiful cabinet was delivered on Saturday 13 February. I am still wondering how I managed without one for so long.
