things and things

hello friends... well last week was a big week, and this week is the big show... the show at brunswick street gallery went really well. lots of great work in the exhibition. i was really happy with how mine was hung. great frames by grate designs, (thanks guys!)

the dickerson show should be great. you can preview the work now, click here.  you should come along if you can, 6pm wednesday 3rd.

in the studio today i have been unwrapping eco-printed scarves and finishing presents for mothers and doing some drawing. a few of these pics are from the other day when i cut out my whole story logo from some really great rubber which you can get in the frankston art shop (thanks pamela), but i am sure a lot of other places sell it too.

'whole story' is the name i am going to use for my screen printed designs. the boy on the bike and the shops are my first designs to get stuck on screens... i will give you up dates as i get them going! the shops are half cut already. i am using foteco green stencil film, easy as butter to cut... lets hope it sticks!

i've been making clothes too, doing a class at amitie. it is such a wonderful skills. this brown floral was given to me by pamela (thanks again!) and i have made it the detail of the shirt depicted in the pattern, the one on the left.

the dog's name is kai. he is my families dog... he like to sit outside the studio and check in on me every now and then. a dog of my own is arriving next week... he will be my studio buddiy... more photos to come soon!!

the studio

i love pictures of people's studios so i thought i would endulge in showing you mine. just little snippets. i love my little wooden animals and the letter stamps. you can see i love collecting wine boxes and old cotton reels. the yellow fabric is silk dyed with tumeric. my new favorite colour!

also, some of my latest creations that will be on show in march.
