Keeping it in the family

Sydney festival has started, Obama has announced $2.3 billion in tax credits for clean energy manufacturing, and today I'm going to post about my ever so talented cousin.

Anna Wili Highfield started creating her hand made paper and found object sculptures when she had her new baby and took time off working as a scenic painter Opera Australia.
She crafts her animals by sewing torn cotton archival paper, and that is much better for longevity on recycled timber block stands.
What started off as a one off bird mobile for her young daughter, has now become Ana-Wili's business, with her being commissioned to exhibit at the Rockerfeller centre in NYC later this year.
Such a talent.
