Hi All, Thought I would share a page out of my sketch book.
This is something I have been working on for a project that will be announced on the Curiouser in Wonderland Blog soon.

Curiouser in Wonderland

Introducing my new blog...

I have joined forces with my wonderfully talented friend Heather Peters over at Inkysplatter, to create a blog dedicated to the wonderful Alice who visited Wonderland all those years ago.

We will be sharing our knowledge and any curious bits and pieces we find along the way, such as reviewing Alice books, Movies and cartoons, Craft and of course our own illustrations of Alice's adventure.

Heather and I are two Melbourne Illustrators and Designers with a passion for all things Alice. We met while studying a Diploma of Illustration and bonded over our love of Alice, which has also lead to a joint Alice exhibition that we will be having mid next year.

So if you are curious about all things Alice, then join the teaparty over at Curiouser in Wonderland. We would love to have you. xo

The Hummingbird

Hi All, Hope you have had a fab weekend. I have been doing a bit of a makeover on my house and today I'm showing you a new piece of art that I created especially for my lounge room.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I always find it harder to do artwork for myself, then to create for others. Never the less I'm actually pretty happy with how it has turned out. It looks perfect against my latte colored walls...

I thought it would be a nice touch to fill some of the flowers petals with love letters from 1906.

This piece is full of different textures that I found on the net.
I especially love the turquoise and gold through the hummingbird.

I wanted to incorporate some subtle text into the design, just to pull everything together. Beau Jarden (Beautiful Garden) seemed to fit the piece perfectly.

Hope you like it. xo

Look what I bought!

I had my Birthday recently and my wonderful friends (special thanks to Cazz) bought me a necklace and ring created by the wonderful Danita.

So naturally I have now started buying more of Danita's Artwork.
Here are my recent purchases...

Cant wait til I get them :)
