I really enjoyed creating the nature collages. I drifted back to the Summers of the ’60’s when with friends, running fast on the path to the beach ,our feet would burn:) I also remembered organizing the nature table at primary school. My favorite subjects were, art, nature and social studies. I collected many of the coastal found objects items from Australian beaches and from my own backyard.
