I was recently lucky enough to be involved in Logan City Council’s Carpet Pathway Project at Springwood.
Two of my designs featured in the project. The Carpet Rugs are painted on two walkways in Springwood;
Dennis Road to Murrajong Road, adjacent to Springwood Central State School, and the recently opened
Laurinda Crescent to Carol Avenue thoroughfare.
Street seating shaped like river pebbles has also been installed as part of Council’s $5 million program
to unlock the city-making and commercial hub potential of the Springwood Activity Centre
