At 81 years old, one of my favorite people from Tasmania, Theodore Castle, has passed away. Ted was an amazing man, full of life and humor. Just to give you an idea of his personality, three weeks before he passed a nurse came into his room with decorative feathers in her hair. “How do you think I look?” she asked Ted. He replied, “Gosh, you want to be careful, they might take you for a rooster and chop your head off.”

I will post more information on the competition when I receive the formal press release. Thank you Kyla Knight for all your help and inspiration, I couldn’t have done it without you!
Tonight my work was included in an exhibit for Tourism Tasmania at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco. Above is a photograph of me and one of my favorite friends from the Adventure, Angela Drury.
