The Travel Issue

So last month I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to create a work for Yen Magazine, based 'my favourite travel destination'. I intially thought Berlin, coz you know - why wouldn't it be? But then I figured it seems to be everyone's favourite travel destination, and that would be boring! And as I thought about it, it made me realise that though in my travels I spent longest in Berlin; it wasn't the place that enamoured me so, but it was the 2 month honeymoon drinking coffee, wandering and drawing pictures with my Husband that really made it special. Really, we could have had an awesome time anywhere!

So I decided to revisit Copenhagen (in a mad rush to meet the very tight deadline), particularly because I knew I could answer all the questions about it! It made me realise that even though I was only there for 6 days over a year ago (and spent approximately 84% of that time squished in an armchair playing cards and drinking hot chocolate), it is the one place that I would love to revisit. Such a tiny city filled with sumptuous delights (particularly the locals - um, yum!).

I have a weakness for beautiful things, and Copenhagen is an entire city made of it. Some of my favourite things are from there: my special green winter rug (which now seems to belong to my kitten) that kept us warm when we had no heating in Berlin, the coffee cups that I carted across 3 countries in my hand luggage, and that damn-beautiful-good-for-nothing-but-tying-around-wrists coloured string.

Sighs. If anyone's heading up that way, I could totally go an overpriced tall latte and a fudgey wudgey cookie right now.

Website is LIVE and more shows to come!

Dear Friends,

Apologies for my absence. It's been a super busy time, and I have been hoarding secret pictures that I am dying to share. In the meantime, the website is as up to date as it can be at this time, so please do check it out!

My new solo project show after the end, is going to be launching at the end of May at Anna Pappas Gallery - stay tuned. All the work has been sent to the framers, and I'm sitting on my hands waiting for it to be completed (eeee!).

However, while I sit on my hands, I'm also working on a collaboration extravaganza with the multi-talented superwoman Tai Snaith, on a so not secret crazy cat lady show at Craft Victoria: Why I Eyes Ya. While Tai is busily creating an accolade of cat-related products for our show (while simultaneously preparing for her sure to be awesome West Space show - ahem, the woman is a machine), I am madly trying to bang out some more wacky cat-madness collage.

Here's an oldie but a goodie to keep you sated. 

All in a day's work - keep you posted!
