Art By Wiley

Today I am lucky enough to be featured in the “interviews” section of Jodi’s Art by Wiley site!

Why am I so excited by this? Well, for one Jodi is an amazing artist herself (I would JUMP on the opportunity to do an art swap with her if the opportunity ever arose), and secondly I’ve been a fan of her interviews for a while. She has interviewed some of my favourite illustrators and crafters, and I’ve gained new favourites from there too.

Here’s a snippet of my interview:

“Nature is the biggest inspiration for me. I find it oddly alien, and that fascinates me! It’s such great irony that the very stuff that makes up this planet can still seem so freakish and unreal. Show me one of those BBC nature documentaries and I’m all astonishment… take me into the backyard and hand me a teensy seedpod and I’m just as enamoured, sit me in front of a hyper-coloured sunset and well…you can imagine, I pretty much turn into the “double rainbow” guy.”

Balancing the Tide

Last month I was also interviewed by Molly from Balancing the Tide.

Molly and I have “known” each other online for quite some time, she is a writer, poet, exquisite photographer, and she owns quite a few pieces of my art. Since we first encountered one another we’ve since both had our first babies. Now she runs “Balancing the Tide“, a site dedicated to interviewing artistic mums, asking how their creative lives have changed since having children. “A LOT” is of course the answer… at least it is in my case.

Here’s a snippet:

“My art-making used to occupy half of the studio we have out the back of our house, but as I tried to squeeze small moments of art into the calm moments of each day, I moved my computer inside onto the kitchen table. This made a big difference, I could be a mum, and answer an email on the way to change a nappy.”

Many thanks to both Jodie and Molly.xx.

Seduced by Facebook

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Last month I woke one day to find my online Etsy shop had almost sold out, and had miles of messages from people asking for more. After some silent astonishment, then gasps of excitement, I went off hunting, trying to discover where all this sudden attention had come from…

Etsy had featured my wombat pillowcases on their facebook page!!!

And then not long after, on their homepage!!!

My “online-seller” hopes and dreams had finally come true. I had a very busy month.

Now that things are slowing back down again, I have been seduced by the attention and have set up my own facebook page. A little late to the party I know, but still I’m here:

Lifestyle Asia Magazine

Friday, March 16th, 2012

This month Lifestyle Asia magazine published a lovely big four glossy-paged feature of my work. If you can read chinese you can read the interview, if not the stylish design and layout is worth a look in itself, the Chinese characters make it look so fancy! Big thanks to Ambrosia for the interview (and whoever designed the beautiful layout). Pick the magazine up in Sydney if you feel like a look.

MAEVE Magazine

Friday, April 29th, 2011

While I was away things were still happening, here and there.

The beautiful MAEVE Magazine interviewed me for their 2011 Winter edition.

Here’s a snippet:

MAEVE is an online magazine for style-savy mums, released quarterly, beautifully designed and filled with good interesting stuff.

Thanks MAEVE!

7.30 Report

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

If you were to ask, I’d tell you that one of my greatest fears is being on TV in the background of one of those tabloid news stories. You know the ones where all you see is a slow-motion close-up of a cellulitey bum walking away. Or worse, a zoomed in slow-mo shot of someone eating a hamburger, beetroot and sauce oozing out the side.

So I broke into a little sweat when a friend left a message on our answering machine the other night saying he’d seen me on TV. It was a news program, but a reputable one, and I was in the background, but thankfully not doing anything embarrassing.

The story, on the 7.30 Report, was about the success of Frankie Magazine, with lots of footage of the Finders Keepers Market. So my 3 seconds of fame was proudly riding on the coat-tails of Frankie Mag. And what a fine coat it is!

You can watch it here for the next few days on the 7:30 Report, from Tuesday 8th June (fast forward to just before the 25th minute).

Finders Keepers Interview

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010
