I am a freelance writer living and working in Adelaide. With an interests in art, photography and vintage caravans, I try to get out and about as often as I can.

Whimsical creations from myth and legend
The Other Side of Real will be an exhibition of paintings and sculpture that explore totemism, animism and mythology presented by Clancy Warner and Linda Lee.
After a career in the US as a tattooist, Clancy Warner completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2013 and is now becoming well known in Adelaide sculpture circles with winning sculptures in events that include the Brighton Jetty Classic Sculpture, 2016 and the Palmer Sculpture Biennial, 2016.
Clancy works in bronze, timber and various metals, incorporating reclaimed materials to imbue each of her works with unique dimensions.
Linda began her career as a commercial artist and later pursued a teaching degree in design. She had a passion for a more creative outlet which led to the completion of a Bachelor of Design and Visual Arts in 2014. She now paints with a group of artists at the Yellow Door Studio.
Her works 'Uber Divas' depict ancient goddesses who are both warrior and saviour. Linda states "Their dualistic nature traverses the boundaries of societal norms and defies the patriarchal religions whose tenets define distinct gender roles."
The exhibition will be held at Clancy's own gallery and studio "Firgun and Fiire" situated on Jetty Road, at Largs North. The Firgun & Fiire gallery showcases emerging and local artists in a unique and accessible setting. This exhibition has all the hallmarks of a thoughtful and well presented body of work.
