Busy New Year

Happy New Year!

I know exactly what you’re thinking. You’re thinking “Hey, January came and went and she didn’t update her website like she promised”. And you’re right. In my defence, my website build has been sidelined while I busily make one for someone else.

I’m currently working on a freelance project creating a new website for author Jonathan Walker. Pistols! Treason! Murder! is the first of his books to be released in Australia, with the official launch on the 21st Feb. The past few weeks have seen Jonathan being interviewed by various TV shows, newspapers and journals, so keep your eyes and ears peeled.

‘Jon Walker’s Pistols deserves to be called our first true work of ‘punk history’. Through the dank Venetian alleyways we pursue the elusive and dangerous spy-master Vano in a story that is as lustily exhilarating as the original Sex Pistols’ – Iain McCalman

Working on the site has been good fun. The brief was to create an extension of the book; keeping it mysterious, visually rich and punk-like (in a 17th century Venice kinda way). The new site is aiming for launch at the end of the month, so I’ll provide a link then. (Until then, my own website can patiently wait).


What else have I been up to?
Before and after Christmas I had some photography jobs, including some adorable children’s portraits, and corporate headshots of the friendly folk at Positive Outcomes.

I’m continuing to work on my illustrations, and have added a few more into my portfolio.

Just this week I received exciting news that two of my watercolours have been selected for an exhibition in Rochester in the USA. Details to come…

There will be a few new items in the shop this weekend, (although production in the workshop will be a little slow until after February).
But boy oh boy those crafting cogs will start cranking in March!
