Today I took down my exhibition Transitions at the Belconnen Arts Centre. Many thanks to all who dropped by for a look over the last few weeks.
Many thanks also to artsACT for making this project possible.

Tiny drawings, like microscope slides. Investigating surfaces found within the urban environment, specifically the Inner North.
In Translation will be opened at 6pm on Thursday 11th of September - all welcome. In the meantime, check out our process blog for the exhibition, here.
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.

Super excited to be heading off to Tamworth today, for the opening of the 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial. Very proud to be exhibiting a small collection of new work (including the piece pictured) alongside 21 other artists from across Australia.
The 2nd Tamworth Triennial will be showing at the Tamworth Regional Gallery until 18 October, with plans to tour nationally throughout 2015 and 2016.
