“Bird of the sky
still bound to the earth,
soaring to unimaginable heights
yet returning to perch in the willow.
Death is near, always near
and so…is life
even in the ashes.
Rise Up Phoenix.
Live. Fly. Create!”
― Michele Jennae

“My art reflectsore: my process of viewing and experiencing nature as I remember it, that random pendulum of intensity and tranquility, the shape, colour, line, and texture I associate with nature’s wonders, beauty and complexity all coloured by an adult’s remembrance of childhood imagination and fancy.” – Col Mitchell
