Vintage Butterflies

I love the 50's pastelle colours on this vintage Nestle 'Butterfly Caddy' chocolate tin. Perfect for summer colour inspiration!

Brightening the garden

 The showy flamingo-pink blooms of the flowering quince brighten up the cold winter days 
here in northern Victoria.

Japonica and peach blossom

My youngest brother is a Landscape Architect but is also my go-to man for any thing Adobe related, much to his chagrin. Here is a baby announcement he recently created for some friends, using my illustrations of japonica and peach blossom. 

Nice job Michael!

Lanna Lush

My finished pencil case design for the last assignment of 'Make Art that Sells' e-course. The brief was for a 'hyper-lush' design using your collections as a starting point. I'm not a huge collector of things in general (apart from Art & Design books and novelty erasers in my primary school years.....) but I do love a good fabric stash! This embroidered textile came from the Hmong Market in Chiang Mai.

Pink and Purple

 Another week in Lilla-land has sped by with an insight into the wonderful world of Wall Art. The brief was for an abstract piece of wall art (with lettering) in a colour combination determined by birth dates. Being a Pisces, I scored pink and purple. I finally got an excuse to dig into to my collection of sari fabrics gathered from a back-packing trip to India a few years ago. The joys of being a fabric hoarder......

'Papillons' and 'Home is where the Heart is'.

And my pesky cat.
