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 […]

Breakdown printing

Some silk on my print table which has been breakdown printed using the screen in a previous post. It looks a lot more yellow now it has been washed out so I’ll over dye some of it but I’m reasonably happy with it. I’m doing various silks printed with gum leaves for an exhibition piece […]

Sculpture by the Sea 2014

These are my collection of photos – I haven’t added most of the artists names but […]

Still here!

I finally finished my Mysterium piece, right on the deadline after many long days and nights sewing.I can’t show it yet and the exhibition is not until October. The work had to be in early so a catalogue with photos etc. could be prepared. I’m now working on my DW blue challenge piece – also […]

Scorched Earth sold!

I went to pick up my 2 pieces from the Minnawarra Art Awards this morning and found out the quilt (above) was sold. I’m very happy someone liked it enough to buy it, but I know I underpriced it. I was in such a rush getting my entry in and had to price it before […]
