Ashvin Harrison VISUAL ARTIST prints available globally on www.bluethumb.com.au (Shipping Globally)

I create based on my feelings for life and death… dark shadowing, strong contrast and a sense of light from above is often evident in my works.

My latest creation is based off an older work I created. I have now created enough tree inspired works to consider them a series. I come back to this idea as it links well to my views on life. You’ll notice I create most of my works in a singular form or through a sense of isolation. I also leave most background white to hint at timelessness through an existential view. I aim to make the focus of the piece set without time restriction, as if it could exist in any time or place. This boab tree is based off a boab I took photos of on my travels through Northern WA in 2008. Such a beautiful place to sit and think.

My latest creation is inspired by the beauty and mysterious nature of an owl and also a clear night sky. I, like so many, love owls. I started with charcoal to create a strong angle and deep shadow. I then added highlights to hint at night lighting reflections. A mix of acrylics and resin was then poured and splashed around the canvas to express movement, emotion and vibrant beauty. Ready to hang high quality canvas.

My charcoal and acrylics horse painting is created with a focus on freedom, time and the rhythm of life. I created a photorealistic looking horse with delicate charcoal brushing and smudging. I then splashed acrylics and acrylic mediums throughout with an intension to create motion within my desired theme/perspective on life. This art piece has 8 colours blended in a fluid look. It also created some additional colour blends throughout.

Food and Tea pairing – the best teas for each course of your Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea

www.roqberry.com

Sunday 31st March is Mother’s Day – and the traditional way to celebrate your mother and thank her for all she has given you, is to treat her to a full-on Afternoon Tea.

We often focus on the sandwich fillings, and the springiness of the scones, and the beauty of the tiny finger cakes – but what about the tea itself? Are English Breakfast, Earl Grey or Darjeeling really the only options?

An Afternoon Tea consists of three distinct courses, and according to tea sommelier Kim Havelaar of artisan tea brand Roqberry, each course deserves a different tea blend if you are going to make the most of the flavours (and the occasion).

A traditional Afternoon Tea kicks off with fruit scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam. In general, sweet dishes tend to combine best with black tea. And in this case, to complement the fruitiness of the jam, an Earl Grey – or a more modern Citrus Grey – would be a failproof choice. For a more adventurous pairing, Raspberry Fondant, a black tea with real raspberries and cacao, will emphasize the berry flavour while bringing a hint of chocolate to the mix.

Next the savoury part of an Afternoon Tea, consisting of finger sandwiches and possibly a little quiche. Depending on the fillings, there are a few options here. For a variety including for example smoked salmon, cucumber, and chicken, a Chinese green tea would be a great match. Go for a luxury artisan variety to celebrate the occasion, such as Long Jing or Jasmine Dragon Pearls. If the dishes on offer are of a richer nature and include the likes of roast beef, smoked duck, and mushrooms, then a smoky black tea like Lapsang Souchong would pair well. A milder alternative is The Big Smoke, a blend of Assam, Yunnan and Lapsang Souchong.

And finally, the delicate little cakes – each a tiny work of art and bursting with sugary deliciousness. Black or (Dark) Oolong tea will balance the sweetness of the desserts best. A light black tea like Darjeeling works, or for something special, opt for Chinese Trio containing three of China’s best black teas (Mao Feng, Golden Monkey King, Yunnan Black).

After you’ve eaten all you can from the tiered cake tray, the perfect tea to end with includes ingredients like camomile or peppermint to help you digest the feast. Bloom Box is a wonderful floral infusion containing camomile, rose petals and hibiscus, while smooth Peppermint Cream is sheer indulgence in a cup. Should you however feel tempted by now to close off with a coffee, try Coco & Joe instead. Sri Lankan black tea with coffee beans and natural coffee flavouring, it’s the best of both worlds.

By choosing the right teas for each part of the Afternoon Tea experience you can ensure that you make the most of the variety of flavours of food on offer and give your Mother a treat she will always remember.

From Chemotherapy to Retail Therapy – How One Cancer Survivor Became an Entrepreneur to Help Other Women

Founded by cancer survivor and mother of 3, Tara Lock became an entrepreneur to help other women experiencing overheating from chemotherapy treatment and facing menopausal hot flushes.

After being diagnosed with cancer over 2 years ago and experiencing constant overheating throughout chemotherapy, Melbourne-based mother of 3, Tara Lock started sourcing and testing over 30 different cooling fabrics before perfecting and bringing the Chilly Towel to life in 2015.

“One of the main symptoms throughout my illness was constantly overheating, hot flushes and night sweats. While I am extremely pleased to say I have fought my cancer battle and won, I still experience this ongoing side effect from the chemotherapy. I use my products on a daily basis to assist with my constant overheating,” says Tara.

“Being diagnosed with, and beating cancer has given me strength to strive for something positive in my life. My dream is to share fantastic, affordable quality products that can assist so many people who are going through similar experiences,” Tara asserts.
