Two days of creating in clay ‘The Birth of Venus’ Botticelli’s most famous painting, I wanted to create a piece of Italy to mark the beginning of my Italian sculpture tour. 3 weeks later fired and ready to go I drove to the Gold Coast to visit a teacher and friend Ursula Kelly.

We mixed paints, laughed, drank wine and painted The Birth of Venus sculpture, she nows takes pride of place in my studio IMG_4587
