Jean McArthur / A Garden Full of Weeds

  • Jean McArthur / A Garden Full of Weeds
In A Garden Full of Weeds, a lifetime’s observations and experiences are captured by Jean McArthur - poet, nurse, artist, traveller. Poignant moments are described with a visual artist’s eye and balanced with the compassion of one in the caring professions. With an intrinsic connection to the natural world, and a fascination for people, McArthur has created a unique poetry collection that spans the south-east of South Australia, to Canada, Mexico, Sri Lanka and South East Asia.
‘Jean McArthur’s journey begins on a small, isolated rural farm on South Australia’s Limestone Coast. Events both joyous and devastating are chronicled as she travels for love and for adventure. While she is away, weeds propagate profusely in unexpected places, fire burns, but no matter how hard she tries to eradicate them, these symbols return in her life, in her art and writing. In A Garden Full of Weeds Jean McArthur has grafted many weeds into treasures and sifted through ashes to find strength.’ - Jude Aquilina
