But did you ever see...


A Peacock in a tree?

Don't be Koi with me..

It seems I have quite a large and ever expanding collection of paper.. So I guess it's about time I made use of it.

Bedtime sketches / Works in progress

Wood shape necklaces, hurrah!

These little friends are covered in pretty paper and are wood stained on the reverse. I have also burned the edges to give them a softer look. Cute, huh?


The shapes I have hand carved will be put up soon - no where near as good as these!
Next on my shopping list is a Jig Saw :)
In the meantime, Casey's Wood Products all the way!

White ink is fuuuun!

First time I've used white ink. IT. IS. AMAZING. Definitely the best $14.99 I've ever spent.

Flowers and buttons

New paper arrived today! Yippee! I love ordering things online. When you get them it's like a birthday present... except you paid for it.

Bedtime sketch.

The only time I seem to be inspired to draw is when I know I need to sleep. Hmmpft.

Hello Autumn.

Many more to come. I've gone on a crazy painting spree, so when it's not so fah-reezing in the studio I'll take some photos.
I really need to invest in a scanner...

I've found a new obsession.

Foam print created this afternoon for the Mother's Day window at work (Riot Art and Craft). So much easier than lino printing and waaaay cheaper.. different effect though, obviously. Outlined with India Ink.

Wednesday: Unproductive.

Had the day off and only did an A4 watercolour and a small illustration.
Just couldn't get inspired.


This one I tried a different approach, using more masculine colours.. not really my style. Bit of fun though. Kind of looks like mountains and the sea.


Have not done an illustration for ages! I'm not happy with how the legs turned out, I'll have to practice drawing bird feet..or are they called claws?

Paper art... I gave it a whirl! So much fun to make.


Started off as scribbles.

Felt creation

Created for the the 'felt' themed window at Riot Art and Craft. Based on 'The Kiss' by Gustav Klimt. It was actually a lot of fun to make... minus the threading of tiny beads. The effect is great though.
I'm currently working on a felt version of 'Starry Night'.


Too hot for cotton candy.

Jerrabomberra fair! First ever market stall - exciting, eh? Too bad it was incredibly hot and I didn't think to bring a gazebo... silly me. I ended up leaving around lunch time.

Thanks Loren for keeping me company in the blistering heat and saying hello to people when I didn't feel like it :) Trooper.

Couldn't even take a little heat.

The Beginning

I have finally decided to go a bit more public with my artwork and display it on this lovely little blog.
Hopefully this will encourage me to get off my lazy arse and DO SOMETHING. Enjoy :)
