The image above is a collage of things that reflect what's been happening in my life lately. Usually I would agonize over the images so they reflected exactly the things I was talking about. In the end, it doesn't matter, no one cares that much. So I threw together the closest vague thing I could find.
So. My life lately...I've finally found a sharehouse and moved in. It's an old Victorian terrace not far from my studio. I've got a small room so I've had to get creative with my furniture and belongings to give the illusion of space. The room has a really cute fireplace, which I'm going to fill with candles during winter. I also treated myself to some Sukin natural body products and some Vanilla home fragrance. So it's a tranquil and cosy little spot to come home to.
I've been getting the hang of my vintage style bike, adding a basket to the back and putting the poor thing to work as a packhorse. I'm thinking I might need some side pannier bags as well now that I carry my kitten Poe in the basket on the back (he comes to the studio with me!).
I also picked up a funky plum coloured armchair for my studio so I can sit and do my stitching. I'm slowly decorating the place in rich, colourful patterns and textures - so far only with cushions. But I've got dreams to wallpaper over the hideous lime green paint and try to pick up a snazzy vintage footstool.
Of course I've been busy working on various illustrations - like my teapot for This Little Teapot, a group show at Paper Plane Gallery in Rozelle. Plus the latest poster for the Finders Keepers Sydney markets coming up in May. And of course, selling a few tarot decks and trying to finalize what I want to do with the packaging. If you were interested in getting a deck of your own just email me for a paypal invoice.
Ok - so no promises but I'm hoping to be writing here more often. Over and out.
