I chanced upon Leonie Van Eyk at one of those numerous end-of-year parties the other day. I hadn’t seen her since we went to the VCA together, where she undertook the Post-graduate Diploma in Puppetry, the only one of its type in the Southern Hemisphere and sadly axed for the ‘Melbourne Model’ back in 2009. She is now making films in the midst of tending to her adorable little toddler, and continues working with Adults with Disabilities.
Here is a detail of the brooch, which I bet you didn’t pick up before. A very surprising and macabre finishing touch.
