Collaborations

When one artist says to another artist, “Would you like to paint some of my vessels?”

And I say, “Sure!”

So the ceramic artist magically throws some clay to produce these lovely forms and then she says, ” there you go”

And this all happens.

Bellarine

I am updating my website this month. Some of my work is very difficult to capture within the format of a screen. I always photograph work before glass framing, but sometimes I think showing the frame is also important.

If you see any of my works either in the gallery or shop sections that indicate they are framed and there is no photo, please contact me and I will email you a photo.

This is from a series I made in 2018. A series of paper collages. Bellarine will be exhibited at the upcoming DUST exhibition this coming May 3rd in Brisbane. Details here

DUST group show

This coming May I will be participating in a group show in my home town, Brisbane.

Three ceramic artists have invited me to be involved in DUST. They are, Tracy Murray from Shut Up and Relax, Clairy Laurence Ceramics and Libby Usher from the Clairy and Libby collaboration Laurence Usher Ceramics.

Opening night is Friday May 3rd, 6-8pm

214 Latrobe Tce Paddington, Qld

The Gallery hours are limited but will be open Saturday and Sunday 10am -2pm May 4, 5 AND May 11,12.

I will have a range of works in the show, including some small still life paintings on paper. Occasionally I dabble with still life because of my love for flora and ceramics. Keep an eye on my instagram feed for more updates.

Studio happenings

Over the last month I have been spending every spare moment in the studio.

I have the sense that this year is going to flyby. Family commitments have been locked in already: trips;  weddings and school demands.  In May I have two exhibitions. One in Brisbane and the other in Adelaide. (what was I thinking) I will have all the details first via my Instagram page and also here on my website.

So in this post I just wanted to share a small amount of the works that are in progress. It looks very much like a dog’s breakfast at the moment, and I feel like I have no room to move at times. Landscapes, particularly trees and even more the eucalyptus trees in my own backyard are the source of my investigations.

This summer has been relentlessly hot and dry. The heat has caused so much stress to the trees, that they have shed their bark so dramatically this year, revealing the most amazing colours and textures. I’m looking forward to cooler days so I can get out and walk more within the landscape.

All the current work for the show is available via my shop that will then directly link to the Boom Gallery website. You can purchase online or email them if you have any questions.

and a new year begins

I am always ready to start before I can. Ideas overflow at this time of the year yet I have little time to focus and commit to them during school holidays.

When I can I reach for any chance to start something. Anything. Mark making is an integral part to any artist’s practice. I guess it’s a bit like warming up or stretching before a run. (Except I hate running) It can be done in many ways, not just with something that carries pigment but something that can scratch and take pigment or surface away. I still use some old dental tools I was given from my uni days when I majored in printmaking.

Exploring the edge

It’s been summer here. I spent this time with my family doing….well very little. And it’s been perfect. A little sewing, plenty of reading and catching up with family and friends. And sleeping, yes so nice to sleep.

No time for painting. Plenty of photos that need sorting. I always upload regularly on instagram and try always to upload many others on my Flickr account.

What will the year bring?
