Lily was inspired by a Manga drawing book at our friends home in Southern Germany. Such a different style and she took it up so quickly. Fascinating for me is the eye mind hand sequence of drawing, I celebrate her skill!
I would like to practice more. X
it’s been a long time since i’ve archived Lily’s art so here are a bunch for her fans x

Lydia had an ice-skating 10th birthday party! such a great experience Lily has been longing for since I told her stories from my childhood ice experiences.a Family portrait.
Lily has an incredible connection with birds. She talks with the kookaburras each morning and has names for those whose call she recognises. at the river a kookaburra alighted less than a foot away and connected with her for some long moments before returning above us and watching our fireside rest. Lily revealed that morning she had asked the kookaburras to come close to her, when she heard them singing in the dawn. Biscuit, her pet as she crowned the river kookaburra.
the following three illustrations are from summer in Tasmania, we where exploring The Norse Myths for Lily’s main lesson and enjoying the legends and the creation concepts. Lily and her dragon. Yggdrasil tree of creation. The creation of man and woman from an Ash tree and an Elm tree.

Drawn After visiting Jugiong on the Murrumbidgee river and reading stories about bushrangers in the area in the late 1860’s. as we left town the Yass-jugiong-Gundagai mail coach pulled up at the pub drawn by two grey horses. Happy lily!
