Giovanni Bellini’s Madonna & Child is projected onto the south face of St Mary’s cathedral in Sydney, Australia & draws a loud ‘Awwwwww’ from the hundreds of appreciative watchers.

The ten minute display of patterns & developing images of doves, trees, classic art & christmas messages thrilled the crowd.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
