About me

Industry Arts
Location Australia
Introduction I live among tall eucalypts in forested bushland outside of Melbourne with my husband, son and our blue dog, Jack.
Interests clay, sculpting, painting, gardening, home reno, podcasts, animals, bird watching, time with my family and spoiling my dog with loads of cuddles.
Favorite Movies Too many of the old classics to mention here, but my fave B&W films include Nosferatu (1922). Plus, a smattering of contemporaries: Chocolat, Amelie, The City of Lost Children, Delicatessen, Micmacs, Orlando, Labyrinth, The Princess Bride, Mary and Max, Requiem for a Dream. Films made by: Guillermo del Toro, David Lynch, Quentin Tarantino, the Coen brothers, Hayao Miyazaki, Monty Python... I could go on. Why just films? Why not TV shows? Like Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, True Detective, American Horror Story, Hannibal, Justified, Band of Brothers, Dexter - but only up to the end of S4 that is - what a crap ending to the whole series.
Favorite Music An eclectic range that changes depending on the mood I'm in. My son is a jazz drummer, so I'm biased there. And, I do have a girl crush on Erykah Badu :)
Favorite Books To name just a few: Walden by Thoreau, works of Poe, HP Lovecraft, Dickens, Conan Doyle and Shakespeare. Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre. Folk Tales of the World, Valli Myers a memoir, Vita's Other World, The China Study, Modern Herbal. And, dozens of reference books - too many really :)
