Paper Paint and Pixel Exhibition

It's hard to believe that our opening night for our exhibition was over a month ago now and I am only just posting some photos. It was a fantastic night, full of family and friends. Can't wait for the next one.

Jasmine Beckett-Griffiths

I have to thank my sister Nicole for this one. She bought me an Alice in wonderland print for my Birthday a few months back and while she was hunting online for that she came across Jasmine Beckett-Griffiths. It took me quite a while to actually look her up, but I instantly fell in love with her work, especially the pieces with a dark side. I decided I wanted to buy one of her pieces but couldn't decide which one, cause she has so many. So here are the ones I like... Which ones your favorite?


Jasmine lives in Florida with her husband and her two cats. Painting is her full time job (I'm so jealous) and she has been creating these wonderful paintings since 1997. I hope that I get to the stage when all I do is paint. Sounds like heaven.

So i decided that there is no possible way for me to decide on which one I would like to buy, so instead I'm going to purchase her portfolio books, both volume I and II from Amazon.
Hope you liked Jasmines work as much as I did.

Buttoned up

I have painted up my Buttoned Up characters. After visiting the Tim Burton Exhibition this weekend, I have been inspired to create these little characters into detailed little clay sculptures. Ill buy some clay this week and make a start on them. See how I go, could be a big disaster, but I wont know until I try, hey!? Ill keep you posted :)

Finder Keepers

Off I went to the Docklands to the Finders Keepers Market on Saturday morning. Perfect sunny day to take a look at what the new and exciting independent artists of today have on show, all in one place.

And of course I couldn't go past this sweet letterpress print from Bespoke. "Her loves a Pony" by Kristal Melson. Handprinted in Australia using an antique 1893 letterpress printing press on 100% tree free cotton rag paper. This scan does not do it justice, It's absolutely stunning.
