During July, I played a number of gigs as part of the Umbrella Festival, South Australia’s winter music festival. The shows were produced by Emma Knights Productions. Emma, a prolific singer-songwriter herself, is an advocate for original music and I’m grateful that she’s included me in her artist lineup this year. I’ve performed at UrrbraeContinue reading “Umbrella Festival is a wrap”
I didn’t anticipate such a long break between part one and part two of my reflections on this particular project, however, life threw me and my fellow creatives an unexpected curve ball in mid 2021. Our last show was on Tuesday 22 June last year, following this we were in extended lock down in NewContinue reading “Once Australia – Part Two”
It’s been too long since my last Meditations blog entry. I’ve been busy manifesting and creating so this is going to be an overview to cover the past couple of months since the Adelaide Fringe Festival ended and I wrapped up a successful premiere season of my show Someday. Auditions A few days after my finalContinue reading “Once Australia – Part One”
I’ve been very busy over the past month refining my new original music show for the Adelaide Fringe Festival. After developing the single ‘Someday‘ through the Interplay artist development program in 2020, I’ve decided to curate a selection of my original songs to present as a mindful cabaret. I’ve incorporated positive psychology and neuroscience intoContinue reading “Someday (Music/Cabaret) | Adelaide Fringe Festival”
I’m ever so grateful for my involvement with Nexus Arts, a contemporary and culturally-diverse arts organisation based in Adelaide, South Australia. I was honoured to be booked as one of three singers who performed with the Nexus Arts Orchestra on 26 January 2021. I thank Music Director Julian Ferraretto for his beautiful arrangements of IContinue reading “Nexus Arts Orchestra | Adelaide Entertainment Centre”
I’ve been sketching for a month now and I can already see an improvement as a result of my creative effort. I chose my latest subject while I was out on a walk with my family. I spotted this pelican poised on a rock in the Roy Amer Reserve Wetlands and something about it appealedContinue reading “Patience | practising delayed gratification”
This time of year means different things to everyone. It’s lauded as a holiday season yet, for many, it causes more work and stress than a supposed holiday ought to. For some it is a spiritual season, one of hope and new beginnings, and a time for giving to our loved ones or those whoContinue reading “Navigation by Stardust | reflections on a purposeful life”
I used to think that I had no talent in visual arts. This was before I’d even attempted to sketch anything. In my mind, I’m a musician, a performer who feels at home telling a story on stage (or, since 2020, via a screen). At the start of this month, I began exploring a newContinue reading “Set in Stone | fixed mindsets”
At the foot of the Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty Summit trail, there is a serene body of water. I recently hiked here with my husband for our four year anniversary, and it is a place I love visiting. It brings me closer to Adelaide’s natural surrounds and, following a strenuous climb, there’s the gratificationContinue reading “Waterfalls | finding flow”
Whenever I stand at the threshold of something daunting I feel my heartbeat accelerate as I sense fear trying to talk me out of taking that next step. In these moments I imagine something serene, and I focus my energy on it until my moderate heartbeat returns. My cousin took a photograph of Jasmine’s faceContinue reading “Face It | managing fear”
