I'm Stocked in Sweden!

I have been waiting oh so patiently to announce that my prints are now stocked in Sweden! The absolutely lovely Kristina and her team at Up Your Wall has just launched a range of prints of my recent work! The images here are from the series of product shots taken for the site by Carl Bengsston in Old Town, Stockholm. Aren't they absolutely beautiful?

I'm so happy to have a partnership in Sweden! Have a look at Up Your Wall for more information.

Time Lapse!

I have always wanted to make a time lapse photography video and I finally had the opportunity to work on one this week! Kristen helped me shoot this at NO NO while I was installing my big stacking pyramid painting!  The artwork is titled 'Two Days Passed By' after the Beaches song, and because it took me two days! And now you can watch the entire process in one minute!

Kristen and I made the soundtrack today on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Hope you like it!

I made plates!

My homemade plates!

My friend Annika organised for a group of her friends to make their own plates designs recently. It's a very low tech system, where you draw, paste or print your design onto a template and send it away to be turned into a plate. I made mine by collaging various pictures together. The mountains are pictures of Antarctica from a travel guide. I got my plates back this week, and I am thrilled with how they turned out!

Here they are pictured in my house with a few objects, including a shark print by Berkeley Illustration and a wooden panda my friend Jazz gave me for my 30th birthday.
