New Work for Show

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008


I didn’t see alot of Winter during June or July; tucked away safe and warm in my studio, busily working on new paintings. I’ve been invited to show 20 works in an upcoming exhibition at artstream studios in America in September and October. So the past few months have been absorbed with creating new work for the show. This being the largest body of work I’ve made for a single show in a very long time.

I’m really excited about this exhibition! I’ll share the details and images when it launches.

unLimited Illustration Exhibition

Monday, May 14th, 2007



I’ve kinda, sorta fallen behind with my monthly news updates here lately, but I have a good excuse… I’ve been preoccupied creating new paintings for the {un}Limited Illustration exhibition which opened in New Hampshire, USA last week. I have 13 works in the show, alongside Penelope Dullaghan, Lisa Congdon, Ashley Goldberg and fellow Australian Lisa Kirkpatrick.

My paintings are watercolour on paper and for the exhibition they all revolve around various ideas of connection. However, this new body of work also brought out a new technique for me; utilizing concertina cut paper-doll idea. I used to love making these as a kid, and just discovered I still do!



I’m now embarking on a couple of commissions, also from America. One I’ve just finished is for a lady who ordered a painting for her friends as a wedding gift. It’s a really sweet idea as she asked for the painting to be an impression of the day her friends became engaged, and it includes their dog and two cats.

The next painting I’ll be working on is for a baby girl’s nursery. Her mother has asked me to illustrate a song they sing to her each day: Gold Days by Sparklehorse. The lyrics are so visual, I just love them and can’t wait to start the painting.

I really enjoy commissions, so keep me in mind next time you’re searching for a unique gift.  😉

Deck Design :

Also last month, in the workshops of Lewisham, one of my paintings was converted into a skate deck design. So keep your eyes peeled for the “tilda” board rippin’ it up at your local half-pipe. Roawww.


Love Exhibition

Monday, February 26th, 2007

As I mentioned in my last post, I was thrilled to receive news that two of my illustrations, “Buzz” and “Whalesong Serenade”, were selected as part of an exhibition held in Rochester, New Hampshire, in America. The exhibition was a group show, bringing together artworks from around the world all about love; “love in all its forms”. The show ran throughout February, throughout the Valentines bonanza, and it’s now finished. Both of my works sold, and I was lucky enough to receive an email from one of the new owners. She wrote to me telling me that her husband bought Buzz for her as a Valentines gift, and that she loves it. I don’t know where Whalsesong ended up, but I’m hoping it’s as well loved.


Proceeds from the exhibition were donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
