Hello! Lovely to see you! Here you will find random posts about living a creative life in country Australia. I am an illustrator. I create, take photos, faff, collect, teach. Watercolour, collage, colour, cheese, travel and dreaming are my faves. And Turkish delight. And cushions. And gardening. And op-shops...

WATERCOLOUR, LOVEHEARTS, COLOUR,PAINT, PATTERN….




Watercolour, lovehearts, colour, paint, pattern

Oh yeah baby, bring it on.All these things in combination. Yup. Sucker. Total.it is like cheese and tomato, coffee and cake…these things just go click in me. Different combinations, different forms … collage, mobiles, string, wood, paper, acrylic too.
Load it all on up, it just says happy, it just says joy, life, positive vibes. Which is the complete opposite of what I learnt at Uni! 

Everything we did was heavily promoted to be dark, cathartic, laden with context and concept.Of course, as a strung out creative visual arts in her teens and twenties, this was an easy thing to touch base with!

But now, quite a few moons later, it is this that I find keeps popping onto my page.
Go Figure!? It is almost like a form of rebellion. Rebel with a love heart!

BITS IN MY HOUSE…the old vintage retro opshop thing….





 BITS IN MY HOUSE
the old retro vintage opshop thing…

Yes, more of the same, more of the house being styled depending on what I have found on my travels. 
Won't stop, can't stop.
Addicted to the chase and the thrill of what I could find. Love the feeling I get from knowing it did not come from a chain store(though bless, i do love IKEA) and not zillions have this too.Of course the whole on trend thing with vintage is…well, on trend, obviously.what can i say, welcome to the fold, ye who gather and fossick, collect and hoard.But my pledge, this DAY ONE of 2014…make good my promise, to select discretely, for maybe, just maybe…I may be a (little bit) -running -out-of -room!
