One of the great benefits of being self employed is being able to bring my family with me when I travel.
My husband Tim is essential to the installation of each sculpture, and therefore our children must also come with us.
I think my kids are getting a wonderful perspective on life by seeing their parents travelling the nation (someday the world?) to install our artwork.
Every time we travel somewhere to install a work of art, we try to see more of the city or region, both to appreciate the community that has selected us to contribute our art and also to put more money back into that community with our own tourist activities.
Below are photos of some of the memorable locations we have visited.
