I've been having fun in between freelance jobs continuing to sketch and paint some of my favourite second-hand ceramic plates, teacups and saucers.
I like working in a sketchbook as I find the pressure is instantly removed to try and paint perfectly. Instead there is a sense of freedom, an allowed margin for mistakes and imperfection, and an opportunity to experiment with different styles and mediums.
The more I paint, the more I want to continue painting and explore different styles. So, I have a continous list in my head of objects to paint - and new ways to capture the subject manner. So much experimenting......so little time....
I am a Textile Designer, Ceramic Designer and Illustrator.
I am English but live in the cute country township of Kyneton, Australia. I love making things. I love collecting things. This is my Bowerbird collection.
What is a Bowerbird?
Bowerbirds have a special characteristic close to my heart…… they are fond of collecting an assortment of found objects to be used purely for decorative purposes. Bowerbirds create beautiful structures, patterns and elaborate displays with their finds and can spend hours arranging their collection of precious knick-knacks.
