exciting march

What an amazing way this month has started… my good friend and fab artist Amanda Hiller has been featured in Period Living magazine. Amanda’s work is so lovely and when I first heard about the news of this article, I didn’t realise the scale of it… Amazing!! Getting my copy tomorrow!!

But the other exciting thing about this article is that some of my photos are featured in it as well 😀 So happy! Its a great way of showing off our continuous cooperation.

Here are a few photos I took of Amanda, her work and her studio.

I’m back :)

Being away from blog writing is so easy… and yet its much more fun, when I make my self write, I just have to keep remembering that.

Although I have been busy, and here are a few things that I have been busy with:

Yes, a bit a crochet is always good 🙂 and these necklaces are already available in my shop.

But not all is yarn and hook, been doing some paintings inspired by a fab artist called Agnes Cecile, here is my version

I know…pretty crap compared to Agnes’s work, but I was happy that I am able to do something that is kind of ok to look at. Definitely there is room for improvement and I’m looking forward to that 🙂

And last but not least, I have been spending a dash of time with Amanda Hillier in her studio, and these are my new lions, it was lovely to carve and print again… and I think I want to experiment more with colours 🙂

Fun with the neighbors :)

No day should pass without the act of creating! (either by making art, craft, cooking your signature dish, I’m sure everyone can think of something 🙂 )

Today I created two linos and went printing with my neighbor and crafty friend Mandy . Basically I was experimenting with different mark making onto lino, textures and graphic elements with lines. In a very short time I managed to print a few off these two plates and what was interesting for me that we used water based block printing inks (instead of oil based ones) and a baren instead of a press. I have a lot to learn but enjoyed every second of it!! And it so low maintenance! Although I must admit using a press has it’s unmistakable beauty!

The paper I printed on is recycled elephant pooh paper given to me by a dear friend Simon. But I can’t wait to experiment on different types of printing paper.

This is it for today, but new adventures await! 🙂
