I am very excited to be planning the launch of my new website and online store at the end of 2013. To help raise some much needed capital, I am having a clearance sale of my art prints from the 2011 exhibition. All prints are A5, offset printed on 350gsm matt laminate stock. Head on over to my Etsy store to check them out!
As a graphic designer, I always get a thrill out of receiving the end product back from the printer. It’s a nerve wracking moment: you know that despite having triple checked your artwork and signing off on perfect proofs, something can still go wrong. But when you open up that parcel and you discover this gorgeous, embellished little piece if beauty you have created, it’s hard not to smile and high five yourself! These were done for local Perth Florist, Clare Cummings aka The Flowergirl. We worked closely together to achieve her vision for her small business branding and are both ecstatic with the result!
I was commissioned to illustrate a children’s book written by a work colleague, Emma Driscoll, for her little niece Abby to give to her as a Christmas present. 100 brownie points for this Auntie I’d say! Anyway I will eventually get around to photographing my recent work professionally but for now here are some instagram sneak peeks into how it went.
Friday was a much-needed quiet night in my cosy apartment cuddling up with Trousers the cat. Whilst we were watching ‘My Week with Marylin’ I got crafty with some type, which I printed out on some 190g white lazer at 10% grey, hand-cut and then applied glue all over them so I could sprinkle them with glitter! The garland is festive and pretty.

I had a wonderful time at my friends Marc & Jessie’s Wedding. (I can call you guys the ‘Papains now!) I did the drinks menu for the day by hand on a black chalk board. It came out well!
