For Stuart - visiting India was an inspiration - the colours - the light

and the amazing people.

The result was a body of work -

unique sculptural figures

in colour.

France and french life has also

been a major influence.

The Palm Cockatoo is found in rainforests and woodlands of New Guinea and Cape York Peninsula, Queensland, Australia. It has a unique territorial display where the bird (typically the male) drums with a large (i.e. up to 2.5 cm diameter, 15 cm long) stick or seed pod against a dead bough or tree, creating a loud noise that can be heard up to 100 m away.After drumming, the male occasionally strips the drum tool into small pieces to line the nest.

The Palm Cockatoo is extremely rare and is the only bird in the world that uses a tool musically. Researchers are worried the bird will be extinct in a couple of decades due to habitat loss and low reproductive success.
