This smallish window is a fanlight above a door to a private chapel in the home of the Director of Heal for Life. I’ve just installed the piece on Saturday (28.07.12). The house is built on the crest of a rise on a beautiful property in the Quorrobolong Valley near Cessnock, NSW. Consequently every window in the building has a magnificent view over bushland and distant hills- except this window which is internal. The chapel opens off the main bedroom.

I’ve included a little of the rustic timber frame in the shot as the house has beautiful natural finishes throughout.

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.

    The colors and textures of this window are so verrrrrryyyyyy Beautiful.
    And the composition makes the eye move around until one has seen all of it.
