Walk About


Nichos Group

I’m sorry folks – my artistic muse has gone walk-a-bout.  This is a term originally from our indiginous people – Australian Aborigines & is a term referring to the custom of male Aboriginal boys "go walkabout" at the age of thirteen in the wilderness for six months as a rite of passage into adulthood. They then trace the path of the ceremonial ancestors of their tribe, following the exact route that those ancestors took, and imitating in a fashion, their heroic deeds, known as the Songlines.  Coloquially though, it has evolved to mean to disappear inexplicably, with no clear explanation or indication of return.  My Muse has gone Walk-a-bout.

I have been busying myself tidying & organizing in my studio (FINALLY I have new lighting!!! YAY!!!) & collecting Urban Driftwood – interesting odds & sods I find in the street or on my travels.  Next week I am hosting an art day – perhaps some creative spirit from the others will rub off on me!  We will be working on these gorgeous Mexican Nichos which looks like lots of fun.

  1. Those nichos are amazing. We had some in the shop and they all sold out before I had a chance to nab one?!
    Can’t wait to see what you do with them.
    Love all your Gothic Art pages. You have inspired me to give it a go.
