I’m back in the studio after a lovely break, and ready to crank into 2015. Portraits are coming in and I thought I’d share this large one that finished off 2014… a team of great work buddies, and lots of fun to draw. May your “Year of the Goat” be filled with the things that make you happy.
I went to the Archibald a few days ago and was blown away from the portraits! Highly recommended. Now let’s just say I’m not quite thinking these are in the same league (ha!) but I thought I would share some recent portraits from my Etsy shop for lovely weddings/anniversaries/births/new houses celebrations – I’m honoured to be involved.
Over the past few months I have been working on some art prints for Finders Keepers/Xmas markets, and my Etsy store. I bring you the complete THINGS SERIES!
Australian Flower Things
I am most most excited to be a finalist for the Etsy Design Awards, celebrating Australian artists and makers. The grand prize (wait for it)… is a trip to NYC! It requires votes from the community, so if you have a moment, I would absolutely love your time voting for me :)).
I got carried away googling my favourite birds – some of the tops are represented here. There are so many contenders, I’m going to have to make a few more of these prints.
So I got this new printer, that I really really like – finally I can print giclees at home! I am overly excited about it, and have a little giveaway on one of the recent prints. You can enter on my Facebook (link just on the right of this post) – but just until tomorrow (Friday) or see the print range for sale on Etsy. Woohoo!

Some recent banner-y portraits, so fun to do! See more at my Etsy store
I’m building a new range of prints; here is my work so far. THINGS! Wooly things, Australian Flower Things, Dog Things, Cat Things… I’d love your feedback on whether these would work as prints; or better as cards?
