Please join me for the opening of my upcoming exhibition Transitions - from 5.30pm this Friday the 29th of August at the Belconnen Arts Centre.
Transitions extends my ongoing explorations of the blurred boundaries between art and fashion. Using drawing, screen-printing and textile processes, the exhibition includes a series of hand-printed sculptural textile objects that can be installed in the gallery space or worn on the body, together with a suite of works on paper. Hand-drawn patterns derived from urban surfaces shift between two and three-dimensional works. A series of photographs by Christine Pobke will also be exhibited, documenting the wearable aspect of the textile work.
A very BIG thank you to artsACT for supporting this exhibition through a project funding grant.

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.
