click image to go to shop

I am so excited to finally have them in my shop!!


sweet dreams!





I thought that it was time for me to share some photos of my latest addition to the house! My very pretty, very lighty fiber optic christmas tree! No need for lights, it lights up itself. Annnnnd it SPINS! hehe. Its only little but its very lovely.





I also started wrapping some of my presents! They are all in brown paper tied up with string (those are a few of my favourite things hehe). And of course, my favourite edition to the wrapping is the little gift tags that I downloaded from lilly piri blog!. They are so sweet and wonderful and I suggest you printing off a few for your own wrapping!










Christmas is so close!

to do list -

  • finish all christmas shopping! (and the best bit WRAPPING!) (need to get paid to finish this task)
  • clean up rooms (I have taken over too bedrooms in my house!!)
  • create create create!!! take photos of some new exciting things for the shop. and get making on some new exciting things.
  • take a photo of my christmas tree so i can show you how pretty it is.


i dont like posting without a photo. but i really have nothing to show you :(

the etsy success.

I sure do spend a lot of time checking out the successful stores of etsy. Maybe its an obsession of mine, maybe it is just because I look at these stores with such amazement and think to my self.... wow. I guess it gives me something to aspire to.

What I have started to notice is that these very successful stores, e.g. ashleyg and the black apple have such hugely successful (or would you say popular) blogs. Everything stems from their blog. kitty genius and inside a black apple. When they are next posting something original or rare so people can be there the second they post it. Right down to what they ate for breakfast. They have a following of people.


I love posting blogs, i love reading blogs and i love having a blog. I dont want my blog to be just about every time I post something new in my shop. But then again that is largely what I am excited about. What interests people enough to come back to my blog? I would love to know if anyone did stalk my blog, like I stalk so many others. hehe.

Well that was just a little bit of self expression for you all. Maybe you need to expect more of this.

But a post is not a post without a picture!



just a little Polaroid of mine

a few more ladies



Just though I would mention that two more of my fashionable story ladies are now available as prints in my shop

They are to go with the previous 5 I posted a while back! I had so much fun making this series and i cant wait to explore more artistic methods in the near future!!!

Hope everyone is looking forward to christmas~!!

art4friends feature!

just excited to announce that I have been featured on the dawanda shop directory. there is even a little interview. be sure to check it out, it is a great directory.



calendar time!

just a quick mention that i have made a little calendar for 2008!! I prob should mention that you can grab these at my etsy, made it, and daWanda in case you prefer shopping it any of those lovely sites!! I hope you like it!

little card packs



hello all,
hope everyone had a nice weekend. when i get around to it and i stop being lazy im going to post come pictures of architecture in helsinki. I saw them play on sat night and they were great!

for the moment i have been making some little handmade card packs! I think they are rather lovely, well i love the paper they are printed on, and a pack of four is available in my shop so let me know what you think!



Also i have been changing things around over at my redbubble account, so you can get yourself some tees and cards over there too, so you could go have a look! its a great community!

MASSIVE UPDATE

Sometimes it feels like everything happens at once.

First things first. Those sydney people please make your way to the annandale hotel for LA FEMME!! Why? Because I will be exhibiting work there as one of the featured artists! it will be a fun day with lots of markets and music and food and art, so, COME ALONG



come. please. my work. will be there



Secondly, I am very happy to say that V-RAW have got me as one of their featured artists! Go to the Jobs section then scroll down to the gallery section, and there i am! (although my name is missing an E) I love V-RAW and i am so excited to be apart of it.



shake the can, its worth it


Apart from all the love and attention I have been getting (hehe) I have been working hard on lots of commissions, which i guess doesnt give me much time to update my shop :( But if you are struggling to find an christmas present for anyone, dont hesitate to visit my little shop. It will bring you lots of christmas cheer.


Hopefully it wont be so long between drinks.
And say hello, I like a chat.






Sorry it has been so long, it has been such a crazy time for me! This is one of the reasons, the Hills Craft Fair. I applied, thinking I wouldnt get in, and then found out i was in, but it was in 4 days time, so i crazyly got everything orgainised just in time.

It was a pretty good day, fairly quiet, but I didnt know what to expect so it was a good experience. Im in another one on the seventh of december, so you are anywhere near the castle hill showground, come on by, i think it starts at 3pm..

Hope all is well.

what a weekend!

i had such a great weekend! my boyfriend (foreshore dynamic) bought me two tickets to see josh pyke for our two years together for sat night, and i had already bought tickets to see ben kweller for friday night. so we had a wonderful time seeing and listing to wonderful music. I had seen ben kweller live before, and even though i still loved it, i think i preferred josh pyke because it was so new and amazing!





in other news, i just posted the beginnings of a new series over in my shop so if you enjoy, why not check it out here!


my work at 696!

the wonderful little shop in Melbourne, 696 have just received my originals and prints for sale in their store!!! I am so excited to have my work available somewhere other than online, just so people can see them in the flesh. And there is an exhibition coming up soon which i think my work will be in.

So if you live in Melbourne, check it out!!



the last for the moment. i think i want to keep going with this, maybe go hunting for some vintage fabrics and try and incorporate them into and other series. i want to see what i can do with the pencil, and what i can combine.

anyway. this one is available in the shop

introducing my brand new series!
shes not wallflower

and here is lily


i have been working on this series for a few weeks now and am finally ready to share! there are currently four works at this stage, i might be creating a few more, but at this stage i will upload these over the next few days.

the idea came from a beauitful piece of fabric i found, and my want to include that with a drawing. i also wanted to take my drawings a bit further, trying new things, new techniques, etc etc.

i used reference photos from my boyfriends clothing label photos foreshore dynamic which i urge you to check out!

there are prints available and they will slowly be added to my shop so if you are interested, keep your eye out

i would love to hear your thoughts, as im trying to develop as an artist and there are so many wonderful people out there that i would love to hear some opinions!!!

i am excited to have organised a new print! its of a recent illustration what you're worth and i think its worth a look over at my shop

there are even two sizes available!!! :)


and the rest!!!



the rest are still available over at my shop


in other news i have been working a fair bit lately on a new project, trying to focus more on improving my drawing skills as well as introducing digital elements in to a work. when i am happy with them i shall show all soon!!!!

more swiming?


another.
available
here


I have been working very hard and been very busy
these past few days
so lots of new images
will soon surface.
:)

swim in suits



i was inspired a few days ago to create some little ink and watercolour works

there are five in totally, and i will be slowly making them available in my etsy shop

if you are interested they are only $25 US and for an original drawing, i think thats rather good :D :D

stay tuned for the others


I recently orders some fine art prints of one of my illustrations. They came out rather nicely and so they are on offer for sale at my shop

They have been printed professionally onto fine art paper and would be a lovely addition to your illustrationish collection. Or whatever. So please. Have a look!!


she is finally framed and up on my wall!
this is a beautiful original drawing and watercolour from one of my favourite artists catherine campbell a.k.a my folk lover. I bought this a few weeks ago because i just fell in love with it the moment i saw it!

This will be the first of many for my collection of originals and prints, I have a print from kjs design on its way to my wall too!!!

Go check out her shop, you will love it!

a day of illustrations



todays day of drawing resulting in these two illustrations. after spending much time in the internet artistic community i have been inspired and influenced to tried out different methods and approaches. i love working with graphite and watercolour and have in the past, but tried to work in a more "illustratie" way. full bodies. etc.

I am going to submit these to my redbubble account where you can check them out with my other drawings and buy cards and prints.

however, for those looking, do you think you would be interested in some fine art prints that would be signed as well. the redbubble organises all the printing and things for me so they are not actually signed and i wont actually see them. I am getting some fine art prints made at the moment of some other drawings and if they turn out nice would people be interested in these as well.

I would also sometime like to sell the originals... anyone interested?

thanks everyone! :D

the fishiest treasury


fellow etsian, ccvalenzo was kind enough to feature me in this lovely fishy treasury!!! this doesn't happen to me often so its very exciting for me.

Sorry everyone!




A while ago i encouraged my boyfriend to open up an etsy store, with the hope that he might sell a few of his handprinted tees! unfortunately, while he has been doing really well selling through another site, (check it out here and by promoting through his myspace so far etsy has not served him well. So i just thought id give a little promo and urge you to check out his etsy store!!!! Let me know what you think!


not something that i typically spend my time doing, however a recent project had my drawing lots of abstract drawings that ultimately created an animation. i should think about uploading that but it seems too tricky.

anyway, these are a selection of 30 drawings i did that all "flowed" from one to the next.
they would look rather lovely framed as a part of a series and if you are interested in such a think these ones are available for sale over in my etsy shop

they are only $28 each and all in my post below you will see an offer regarding shipping which you should also take advantage of!

take care

Check out my lasted deal on the new indie contests site!



Go have a look, if shipping has been holding you back, here is your chance!
