Created as a privacy screen for a house in Dundas, NSW in 1992 this stained glass triptych uses a wide variety of glasses including *Lambert*’s streakies and silenium mouthblown for the birds themselves. Also a Bullseye irridescent for the deep blue/black. Such beautiful creatures deserved the most beautiful glass.

In my research for this project I found a beautifully illustrated 2nd hand book at a favourite store called *Tyrell*’s in North Sydney, sadly long gone. The original illustrations are by John Gould

So I’m now in my 60’s [how did that happen?!] and I feel I’ve finally hit my full stride- thought there’s still a stretch ahead! Born and lived all my life in Sydney, and loving it. Graduated from the National Art School (Randwick TAFE and East Sydney campus) in 1974 with a Diploma in Interior Design, worked for 3 years at Taronga Zoo as their Staff Artist, then took an apprenticeship with the stained glass master Stephen Moore. In 1982 I left his studio to take up private practice.
