Crystal Lake

I just framed this picture (The Crystal Lake) for my lovely friend Lana. I thought I'd take the opportunity to get a photo of it in situ at home before I part with it. Pictured here with a bunch of jasmine from the garden. I've got vases of jasmine in nearly every room of the house at the moment. Spring, finally, finally, is here in Melbourne!

Giveaway in my Shop

I'm fundraising for my exhibition in November by offering a two for one deal on prints in my Shop until the end of the month. While stocks last so get in quick!

Blogger friends please feel welcome to share with your readers! :)


Photos by me, while walking last week around my new neighbourhood. It's a fairly normal mixture of industrial and suburban. I can't help loving the mix, it's what I know.

Home shoot & NAVA news

Photos of some of my artworks around the house. I thought it was about time I took some product shots since I actually have the works framed for the Craft Hatch market at State Library of Victoria next month. The first Craft Hatch was a lot of fun, and it was a thrill to make some sales to some lovely women (yes all women!). I'm hoping to raise some much needed funds at the October market to cover some of my costs of printing and framing my work for the exhibition in November! I put every dollar I make from art sales back into art costs, in case anyone was wondering.

I recently joined the National Association for Visual Arts (NAVA), figuring it's about time to support the industry that supports artists. NAVA advocate for the arts to the Australian government, prepare reports on the state of the arts in Australia and also administrate a few grants for artists. (Among many other things!). I am quite chuffed that NAVA selected me and my newly created artist gallery on their website to be the featured artist this fortnight. Have a look! 

Here's a little screenshot for posterity:

I'm going to spend the rest of today working on a new embroidery! Happy Tuesday!

shop update

I've neglected my shop a bit lately, since I've been busily working on getting new collages and embroideries finished for my exhibition later in the year. This morning I put some time aside to make some new prints for the shop. Both prints measure 8 x 8 inches, and start from US$18 + postage. 

View in my shop.

one inch buttons

I made one inch buttons back in June so that I can give a little something extra to the lovely people who buy my work. I've been randomly selecting one to go with every Etsy order since then!

I also just added the buttons to my shop for sale individually in case anyone feels the desire to have a tiny artwork to wear around with them.
