Seemingly oblivious to everything around him, Chris seemed to become one with his guitar ….

.
We were lucky enough to be invited to lunch at his place, with his one time student and internationally acclaimed musician Gwyn Ashton, and dessert was Chris and Gwyn sitting in the back yard doing what they do best.

.
Chris has become one of the most diverse and accomplished musicians in Australia winning numerous awards and sharing the stage with many musical greats.

With roots in Mississippi Delta Blues he now draws on diverse influences including Jazz, African, Indian,, Celtic, Folk, Rock and of course the Blues.

I’m a wife.
A mother.
I work.
I blog.
I photograph.
I design tees.
I’m tired.

Hi, my name’s Cathie – although I am mostly animated and a bit of a character – I am a real person and like to think of myself as a digital artist. I occasionally revert to my original persona – taking “straight” photos!
