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.

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.

Mother's Legacy (21 - 23)
Acrylics, dressmaking pattern, shellac
Those dressmaking patterns given to me by my mother are still capturing my attention. These pieces are available through the Icehouse Gallery in Methven.
