I've been asked by Sophie Munns, 2010 Artist-in-Residence at Mt Coot-tha Brisbane Botanic Gardens to join with other bloggers to create a postcard artwork for her open studio week from 12 July.
My postcard features a monotype I printed during my art residency at Coochiemudlo Island in April. The monotype was inspired by the morning kajak trips that Cathy and I made through the mangrove forests surrounding Coochie. Often we would see the mangrove seed pods floating by, which made me speculate about the journeys these pods make on the tidal currents within Moreton Bay. Within the monotype there are mangrove seedings, the moon influencing the tides and ocean currents, and floating lines representing the journey of the seed pods.
