My first blog!

For those of you are more familiar with me and my work you have known of me as a practicing visual artist for the past 20 years.

Recently I have decided to branch out into the world of textile design. Considering my background and the fact that I have been incorporating textiles in my painting for the past decade now, it seemed like a natural progression.

I have always had a bit of an obsession with cushions. Some people have likened my home to the inside of a Genies bottle. So what better place to begin by translating my paintings onto what I refer to as the 'Hero Cushion'.

       

Earlier this year I released my first range of 100% Eco friendly, Australian made cushions and limited edition wall hangings. This range was aptly named 'Bohemian Wahine' after my first trip to Tahiti where I was inspired by the lushness and sensuality of this beautiful island and where I am fortunate enough to have an annual painting residency.
