News Update August 2020

 2020 a year like no other with Covid 19 spreading across the world. My thoughts go out to everyone affected. My role as a part time Public Servant working in a local Police Station is considered essential so I have continued to work and feel very lucky to have a job. Isolating and social distancing have also not been too difficult as I am spending more time in the studio making. Having a creative outlet helps me keep mentally healthy and I recommend it to everyone.

 I also hope that through these hard times there is the opportunity for new ideas and positive change in our world.

 In last years update I mentioned my local design group Design Made Inc and our Exhibition Design by Making celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus. The show was held across 2 venues, Home Hill Winery and the Kingston Arts Hub with all the works featured having a size requirement to be no bigger than 20 x 20 x 20 cms. Here are images of my piece Dilly Bag Gathering. 

We were to have our next group exhibition at the Moonah Art Centre right about now but of course Covid 19 has affected this and we are rescheduling for 2021. BUT GOOD NEWS! We are still undertaking our annual Design Market at the Town Hall Hobart. This years dates are the 4th, 5th and 6th December and we will implement a Covid plan to ensure everyone’s enjoyment and safety. 

I am busy in the studio printing and sewing and this year my stall will feature Norens, traditional Japanese door curtains plus lots of bags/pouches. You can see what I am up to by following me on Instagram. 

Finally for this update I am starting to hold some more workshops in my backyard studio in Moonah.

 It is such a welcoming space – inspiring for both students and myself. 

In introductory workshops you can learn my method of repeat placement stencil printing, print your own sample pieces and go home with your own creations plus all the knowledge you need for setting up your own workspace.                                      

I advertise upcoming workshops on Instagram, or if interested you can contact me at 

Stay safe everyone and wash your hands !
