What’s on my messy desk today

I wanted to get another piece done for our exhibition – they have to be submitted by Saturday, but I’ve decided not to. It has to be 2 metres x 40cm, double sided, in eucalyptus colours. I have some silk I printed but I’m not mad on the colours and I think the size is […]

Geraldton workshop

Gelli printing

Gelli printed postcards

I’m involved in a postcard swap with the Aust/NZ art quilt Yahoo group – the topic is gelatine printing. Here are a few of mine.

Just finished!

Today I finished this 12″x 12″ quilt. It was started last year but abandoned. I thought it might be suitable for a challenge issued by the SAQA Oceania Facebook group I’m a member of. The challenge was to research unity and make a small quilt using that design principle. So I used circles, repetition, a […]

Printed tags

A couple of pages in my visual diary – I’ve used my Gelli plate as a stamp and rolled excess paint onto the page.
