A Childhood Landscape is the title of this work in progress which is very close to my heart. Being the 10th of 12 children made for quite a childhood and provided many memories, most of them happy. Although we were as poor as church mice in many ways we lived a life of abundance. Thanks that is, to our parents who were extremely resourceful and imaginative. Qualities which have expressed themselves differently in all of us. Whichever way you look at it, it is an unmistakable trait of The Wilson Family as is an undeniable streak of eccentricity. Traits which I have often relied upon to get me through life and are of course very useful to an artist. I am forever grateful for the gifts that being part of this family have bestowed upon me.

Mother & Daughter Moment
This is the first exhibition where my daughter, Eve Wolfe and I have exhibited together. We were amazed to see that the curator had hung our work together on the same panel.? Considering there was eighty art works that was a real fluke.

Perth College Exhibition Opening
I spent an hour at Perth College where I had four artworks on display before rushing off to Newman College where I had another three. Although it was quite stressful fitting them both in, it was also quite exiting.
