Port Festival Artists Market

Next weekend - 8th and 9th of October - you can find some of my wares (and me!) at a stall in the Port Festival Artists Market as part of the Port Festival. I'll be joined by Felicity who makes gorgeous grass tree planters.

There'll be special market prices including extra savings for multiple purchases.

There's also be a few new lines which I'm excited to share.

Now might be a good time to start Christmas shopping!

PlaceMaking at Common Ground

Over the last few weeks, I have been working as the assisting artist for a PlaceMaking Project organised by Helen Bock of Community Arts Network (CAN). Working with lead artists Lawrence Wilkes and Helen Crawford, a mosaic mural, a painted mural and wooden seating in the shape of a big goanna (completed with exhaust pipe legs!) was created with the residents of Common Ground, Light Square.

Amazing transformation of a space from soul-less "passing through" kind of space to a community area well and truly marked with the artistic stamp of residents - exactly what a PlaceMaking project is all about!
