Love this woman! Deb Ray has given the community of Lismore fabulous sounds from Music Bizarre for years. This year the town was wiped out by a huge flood (the Roth of Cyclone Debbie), leaving many businesses and households with the devastation and hardship of flood recovery. Thanks to Julla for this great painting of Deb which was put up for auction as a fundraiser. The painting will now proudly reside at #thestoneylee_art_farm . Donations too help the arduous recovery from the flood are still needed and appreciated. #musicbizarre #debray #djsisterray #lovemorelismore #floodrecovery #cyclonedebbie #northernriversarts #sreetart #backalleygallery #julla lismorelovelylismore

Beautiful quality digital prints, archival pigment inks on Waterford hot pressed paper, and some limited editions....... I’m so happy with how they’ve turned out, you can direct message or email me if you’re interested. Thanks everyone for your support and encouragement while I’ve been a hermit artist getting it all out onto paper. And thanks to social media, providing an accessible platform to share our work and see what others are doing too, it’s inspiring. 🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸 #prints #printsforsale #supportlivingartists #thankyou #quality #bespoke #handmade
I draw and paint about weeds to highlight the way we dismiss things we are not taught to see as good. For many millennia weeds and wild plants have been sources of food, medicine and materials, they are the roots of modern medicines, farmed foods, and important parts of culture and art, in our haste to neaten and make the environment ‘proper’ we are spraying huge amounts of chemicals known to be toxic, not only to humans but many other species also, disrupting the natural environment, wild beauty and losing a precious resource for the peoples and creatures of the planet. Because of my deep concern about the ways we seek to control the environment and each other I draw and paint weeds of all kinds , including those we have prohibited for social, economical or environmental reasons. To me the idea of making any plants, people or creatures that are native to planet earth illegal , is illogical and disturbing. I have studied and used herbs and wild plants all my life, as food, medicine and materials for art and life. I am profoundly concerned about the effects of all the chemicals spayed all over the planet, used extensively in food production despite their known toxicity. It is a war against nature and against the people, plants and creatures who live natural lives. So my artwork has become my voice in the hubbub of opinion and violence that surrounds these issues. Weeds also speaks about outsiders, fringe dwellers on society’s perimeter. The people who stand up for the environment are treated as weeds, people with mental, physical and social problems are treated as weeds. I am a weed, having grown into an artist outside the norms of art institutions and formal art culture. #freedom #choice #nature #weeds
The two pit kilns are dug into the iron rich bank in one of our orchards. They are both built up at the fronts w brick, freshly slurried for each new firing to seal off sides drafts of the kiln. The small kiln is 600 x700 and 500 deep, while the larger one, here is resized for the recent firing for Anna-marie @madeofaustralia too cater for a recent risqué firing of large sculptural forms. The kiln now stands 1200 high x 600 x900.
@thestoneylee_art_farm workshop open in the new year for ongoing studio seasons and workshops, specialised firings and other creative tasks, limited B n B accommodation, artist in residence.

'Big City Girl' pen on hot pressed paper, 56/76 cm, hanging for the next few weeks in the Space Gallery, upstairs in the art block at Lismore tafe. Living as I do, far from the city in a wild place, overgrown with forests, nature and weeds. Full of life other than human, I'm understandably fascinated by city's, the way they grow, the personalities they become. Are they weeds on the world? Are their people? 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
Detail of a bug.... hanging in the Space Gallery for the next few weeks, upstairs in the art block at Lismore tafe....🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸 sorry my photos are not amazing. I do all these pictures on an old iPhone, I'll invest in a later model iPhone eventually...... 🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸🕸
