I am frequently contacted by teachers from around the world, helping children to make art inspired by my work.
I am so happy to know my work inspires others – to show children that art can be made from anything at all.
Here are examples of work sent to me by teachers/leaders of school and community projects for children.
Absolutely stunning work by a Year 5/6 class at Bilambil Public School, New South Wales, Australia.
Here’s what their teacher wrote to me:
We have just completed a 10 week study of artists who repurpose products, and you were our focus artist!
Part of the ‘Art with Aim’ approach, was to incorporate our science focus: Famous Biomes of Australia and an introduction to sustainability/waste.
The students just loved your work and so we took direct inspiration from your style and chose famous Australian biomes: The great Barrier Reef and the Australian woodlands.
These pieces were completed over 10 weeks, as a class project, the students worked in rotating teams.
The canvas size is 50cm x 50cm. The materials were donated by students and our local op shop (things they could not sell)
As it was a year 5/6 class we really tried to focus on placement, colour and shape, suitable positioning.
