Exciting new exhibition

A new exciting opportunity has risen to exhibit at The Sugar Cane Coffee Lounge, Ashgrove. I’ve got live music, champers, canapes and of course all my intricate, paper artwork will be on display on my opening night which is Saturday 19th November. To book please get in touch, $25 a ticket.

From small beginnings!

Most people around my children’s school know me or know of me, some of them know that I’m a creative type, with only a few who really know what I get up to in my few, precious moments of spare time. So when the opportunity of the school art show came up, I thought I would exhibit the pieces that I did a few years ago to show my creativity.

It’s quite a nerve wracking experience, it is like showing your soul but you know let people in and they can surprise and lovely things can happen.

I had many sales from the exhibition which made my heart jump for joy including this lovely stained-glass inspired piece using ripped paper and another exhibition is now in the pipeline.

As well as exhibiting at the art show, my lovely friend and I were in charge of decorating the hall in a rainbow of paper star garlands. It was an art installation in itself!!  The end result was amazing and it was a shame to take it down when the show was all over but it wouldn’t have survived the boy’s indoor soccer!

Well until next time.

Love

My First Custom Order!!

I was very excited on Monday to receive my very first custom order on Etsy. A lovely customer wanted bunting in peaches, pinks, golds and creams. I worked with her with all the different colour combinations and finally came up with a Peach, Pale Peach and Cream combination in my triangular bunting range for her daughter’s birthday.stamp-Lilibet StanleyI enjoyed packaging the order up and just hoped it would meet with her approval!
