Over the weekend I put the finishing touches on some work that will be exhibited in the upcoming 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial - opening on Friday 15th of August at the Tamworth Regional Gallery, with proposed plans to tour nationally through 2015 and 2016.  I am delighted to be showing my work alongside 21 amazing artists in this exciting exhibition. Today the blog for this exhibition has been officially launched, have a read here if you wish!

A winning combination - studio + coffee + sewing.

Whilst my blog has been somewhat quiet of late, my studio (and life in general) has been very busy. The past month has been a blur of work - both in and out of the studio. Outside of the studio, I’ve started working at Megalo Print Studio and Gallery (SO HAPPY!) - and worked my final shift as a hotel receptionist. In the studio, I’ve been printing, ironing, pinning, cutting, sewing and more ironing. I’m preparing for a number of upcoming exhibitions - it’s exciting, overwhelming and a bit crazy all at once!
I’m excited to be showing my work in the upcoming 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial, holding a small solo show at the Belconnen Arts Centre late August, and exhibiting in the upcoming Emerging Exhibition Prize at M16 Artspace alongside two friends. 
I’m feeling super lucky to have my lovely family and friends, who support and encourage me in all of my ventures (and put up with my busy schedule) - you guys rock.

A little sneak peek of photo-shoot preparation happening recently! One of my two gorgeous models getting the finishing touches to her makeup.
Working once again with super talented photographer (and lovely friend of mine!) Christine Pobke of Pobke Photography, I can’t wait to see the results!
The photo-shoot documents work for my upcoming solo exhibition, Transitions, to be held at the Belconnen Arts Centre in August / September. This body of work continues my ongoing explorations of the  blurred boundaries between art and fashion.

The past month has been a blur of printing, cutting, ironing and sewing. And the odd bit of sewing machine maintenance. Early mornings and late nights in the studio. And more to come - busy preparation for an upcoming solo exhibition at the Belconnen Arts Centre.
