It’s been a hot minute since I’ve created new work that I feel encapsulates both my artistic work as and my more craft based work here as . But the new series that I have made for the group exhibition BLUE by marries both my artistic aesthetics in a way that I’m very happy with. This piece ‘Diaphanous’ and her two sisters are on show at Loft 275 Ivanhoe Library. We have an exhibition opening planned for this Thursday evening Oct 12 6pm - 8pm. I’d love to see you there.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions in Victoria the annual Be Wise Ball & Auction for the Pat Cronin Foundation have been postponed - more than once! I'd planned to donate this painting 'Hope in the Darkest of Days' to the auction but presently it is hanging here in my lounge - a fact which I don't mind so much as it's a piece that I love. However, it would be amazing to find a forever home for the painting. You can check it out via the link below and there are also a bunch of other works available in support of the Foundation.

Studio scenes. There's something very nurturing about working in a space surrounded by creative projects, some complete, some in progress. My little studio is becoming very nest-like as I nestle deeper into my practise.

Hmm colour and organic forms... Where's this leading? Who knows. But it's fun following that golden thread of inspiration.

Continuing experiments in plastic. This pendant is made from recycled bottle tops, reclaimed beads and repurposed fabric scraps. Pretty cool, totally quirky and 100% unique.

I'm nearing the finish line with this pretty. It's so exciting that my lovely client is happy with progress so far, just got a couple more tweaks and a bit of finessing to do. 😊

It's hard to capture the detail of this piece, so here's a shot before mounting and framing. I loved using .paper for the main body of the piece, it's got such lush texture 😍

This menagerie of squiggles doesn't look like much at the moment but it's the seed of an idea I've been toying with for a while now. Taking household waste and making it into something beautiful. 💎 Watch this space. 👀

Huge thanks to the team at for letting me play this morning. 🙏
