Always reluctant to be called an artist and with no real desire to paint, I was still keen to contribute to the wonderful initiative that is Willo. I have enjoyed transferring photos onto wooden boards and in June 2018 made contact with Willo to see if this would be acceptable. Never did I imagine that a photo of our Merino rams on a cricket bat would be the start of some wonderful friendships and connections all over Australia! Rainbow bats for Will is the third exhibition I’ve been excited to be a part of. Not being patient enough to paint, I enjoy transferring my photos to timber. However, choosing which photograph to transfer to a cricket bat can be a little tricky. Editing farm animals to bring out their character is a lot of fun and I prefer the rustic background of raw timber for these animal portraits.
