Once again Valentines day is looming... It's not something that I personally buy into but some people do & its for them that I've been hiding away making a little collection of crafty cards with a mixture of new & recycled materials. The cards are now on sale at The Silver Lining on Mullumbimby high street & more pictures are posted in the new 'Arts & Crafts' section of my portfolio, enjoy!
A couple of weeks ago I was visited by an enormous urge to paint and for the first time in quite a while I decided it might be nice to have a go painting a canvas for a change. I used acrylics, oils, inks and newspaper on canvas.
Just over a year ago I was living in the Yarra Valley near Melbourne doing fruit picking. One evening my friends and I were driving home after work and all of a sudden this massive beautiful white stag leapt out into the middle of the road, looked at us and then ran off. It gave us all quite a jump as I don't think any of us were ever expecting to see anything like it in Australia! He was absolutely magnificent - and so white that he almost glowed in the evening air, this painting is for him.
I had an idea for a shoot and have been making props and pieces for it using odds and ends from around the house. The shoot may not happen for a while now as farming time has come around again but hopefully I'll get to do it as soon as I'm back....
Its been rather a long time since I've posted anything so thought it was about time for an update and an explanation....
I've been traipsing around the east coast of Australia fulfilling visa requirement a.k.a lots and lots of farm work, which hasn't left much time for indulging myself in the joys of make up, alas! However a couple of week ago I teamed up with the magnificent Satya James again on a photo shoot to showcase her new - and absolutely exquisitely gorgeous - range of clothes. It was absolutely wonderful to collaborate with Satya and photographer Ol'jai again - and I'm looking forward to seeing the photos later this week, so hopefully I'll be able to share them soon!
Farming must commence again so there may not be a great deal of make up going on over the next couple of months - however as I'm now traveling with my dear friend Clementine I have a willing face to experiment on, and seeing as my airbrush is finally up and working again this could prove to be a lot of fun. I've done a couple make ups on her over the past few days and also set to work making a headband out of various feathers and pieces of broken jewelery which I think has worked rather nicely...
