Community Gardening is Good For You by 


Another in the set of paste-ups In Alberta Street, Surry Hills (Sydney, Australia). It brought a big smaile to my face. Especially the flying cabbages surrounding the people working.

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.
