At the moment I am working on a little something for a loved-up couple, a Valentine tribute.
Starting with this image of nuzzling budgies, I am drawing them into a new scene.
This is a good example of my working process…I have recently found that drawing directly from the screen, rather than from a print, suits me well. The level of detail satisfies my obsessive eye!
My New Online Store!
December 3, 2012
I have opened a store on Etsy (a great site for all things handmade and vintage) where I am selling giclee prints of my art as well as originals. There are plans for more things in the future too, but as a busy Mum all these things are slowly, slowly for now!

You will soon be able to buy me

So the latest exciting/nerve racking news is that I am soon to be opening online stores, to really be able to share the love (hard copy kind of love) and make my drawings available as purchasable prints.
I’ll also be selling originals once they are born.
So you will soon be able to find me on Etsy and I will also be filling my own store on this website.
Good luck to me.

This is a William Robinson painting from 1990 called ‘Wispy Landscape’
He was kind of wild…

So here I am again on the other side of the world. Which is kind of exciting, and I’m not sure if I’m the only one in the world who experiences this sensation, but I sometimes feel as if I am upside down.
Which I know is impossible as there is no right side up anyway…
Perhaps it is that I feel very far away.
Regardless, this feeling makes me think of things like plants growing out of clouds, chairs on walls, trees growing sideways. I feel like playing a little bit with perception.
Welcome to my blog
September 14, 2012
So….I’ve decided to treat my news stream as more of a blog (with serious news popping up as occassionally as my serious news does!) I’ll be discussing what I’m working on, what is interesting me, what is inspiring me…
So here we go….
We moved to Israel a few months ago. This is cool with me, to a degree, I have lived in so many places in my lifetime. In fact since I left home at the age of 18 I have not lived in a single house for any longer than one year (I am now 35).
I love the freshness and excitement of a new home and I do enjoy change, but here I am finding myself longing to plant myself somewhere and stay for a while.
I’ve been thinking about home and what that is, or where that is, and the feelings that are associated with the concept of home.
Tonight I’m drawing the house I grew up in atop a cloud (cloud theme going on). I still dream about this place regularly, as I do the city it was in (which I think I still consider home). The dreams are warm, safe and comfortable. Sometimes it seems normal and other times I am full of excitement, nostalgia and curiosity to have returned and I explore the house room by room.
It’s amazing that a structure can create such feelings. Home is: a big old brick house on a steep street that I visit in my dreams. I still can’t look at a picture of this house without emotion. I left there when I was 15.
Visible Horizon in Melbourne
May 31, 2012
My work ‘Where gardens grow and paper boats float’ will be shown in the Visible Horizon exhibition which is open from 6th June – 30th June at The Library Artspace in Melbourne.

I’ve been asked to exhibit among 19 other Australian artists in Yamanashi, Japan in the exhibition ‘Visible Horizon’, where we are asked to create an A3 sized work of what we envisage a far away land (like Japan) to be like and how we imagine the future. In exchange, 20 Japanese artists will be exhibiting their futuristic far-away lands in Melbourne.
It’s a really fun project, I only wish I could fly to Japan to see it in person!

My 2007 work ‘Magpie Girl’ has been included in the Winter 2011 edition of the Welsh Academy’s gorgeous literary magazine ‘Taliesin’.
Nice to see her there!
A little update
November 24, 2011
So, over the last year I have produced my second tiny person…another gorgeous little boy to love.
I’ve also had several portrait commissions, and am currently working on some illustrations for a health website.
I will also be involved in a group exhibition in Melbourne in March or April 2012, with the theme of ‘Split Second’.
