Royal Arcade Studio, Timaru

Currently I am working a little from a studio based upstairs in Timaru's Royal Arcade. The semi-enclosed arcade has the most excellent acoustics & I enjoy working there listening to the sounds of people walking through.

This Friday a market environment is happening over the lunch period & a few musicians will be playing. There may also be a couple of artists working so I might take my easel down & join them.

Handmade Wedding Invitations

let the beauty
of what
you love
be what you do


I've just finished making 36 wedding invitations for a friend.

The white card was initially splashed in an abstract expressionist way with slightly off-white paint. Collage elements were added.
Inside, details of the wedding are on a folded paper insert. Computer-generated font - Rabiohead.

I have never used mulberry (saa) paper before - it is lovely to work with & I will explore its use further. I bought the paper at Pure Impressions in Timaru & they took the time to show me how easy it is to wet the fibres & pull it apart...very much appreciated.
