Chance meetings and random comments can open so many doors. A few weeks ago, I was prepping for an exhibition and finalising a few paper mosaics when I ran out of hanging wire and framing tape. I’m picky about my hanging wire and only purchase the plastic coated variety which I buy from my […]
It is not well known on this website because I don’t tend to mention it much, but I’m also trained in graphic design and do both graphic design and web design for artists, small businesses and non-profit organisations. The reason I don’t advertise it is because while I enjoy it, it is not the purpose of this website, which is to showcase my fine art more than my graphic art.
But this week I was a little tickled pink when the brand new signs at our local primary school went up displaying the logo I designed for them late last year.
In my studio this week it is all about production. I have gesso, and boards waiting for gesso, scattered across my drying racks, I have one painting and three paper mosaics in progress, and more waiting to be put online for sale. And dare I mention the crazy plans running around in my head? […]
Just a quick post and dash this week, the kids are starving and I’m going to get into trouble if I don’t feed them… This week, this happened: Still a work in progress and not great photos as my camera is in camera hospital and being held ransom for $190 to repair […]
Between web design tasks and varnishing in prep for delivery to an exhibition this week, I have managed to complete two more mosaics. I’m having lots of fun with these at the moment with some serious plans in the works, so stay tuned. Don’t forget to check out my Exploration of how to […]
I started this week with a lot of energy, but full time and above working wore me down, so my current work in progress hasn’t progressed since the beginning of the week 🙁 And it won’t progress much over the weekend either as I’m working both days. But! I have Tuesday off and there will […]
I had a great day today. I held a paper mosaics workshop at Goodwood Library. Eleven eager artists attended and had a good time. I gave a quick rundown on tools and materials and let them have at it 😀 It was great fun to see the different interpretations and experimenting going on and I […]
This is an updated version of a previous exploration. I’ve updated it and reposted it here for today’s workshop participants and anyone else who might be interested. A new exploration on paper mosaics will follow shortly 😀 Do you remember those fun paintings we did as a kid in school – blob some paint on […]
Our lives are nuts. While many of the mundane tasks of existence have been relieved by technology, we’ve filled the gaps with more stuff, so instead of spending hours washing our clothes in the local river, we’re dashing off to work to a gazillion deadlines, places to be, people to see and appointments to keep.
