In 1994 when her last child left home, artist Gay Hawkes sold her house to finance a trip to Russia and Ireland. Since then she has ‘marched about the world’, as an Irish writer put it, to undertake artist residencies both in Australia and overseas. She works in situ, making sculpture and furniture, interpreting place and recording impressions. After losing everything to a bushfire in 2013, she took off for Armenia. Memoirs Of A Travelling Sheila tells the stories of an artist and her wanderings.
