Dearest Womby, my Schmicko.

Dearest Womby, my Schmicko.

Happy third wedding anniversary to my lovely Schmicko! I still can’t believe it’s been three years since that gorgeous night we got married with our friends and family around us. I was the sort of woman who didn’t think she’d get married. It just wasn’t on my radar. Even though Nick and I had been…

It’s nice to share

First something shameless, but it’s a good deal so I had to share! Red Bubble are currently running a 20% off promotion on canvas and framed prints. If you like my work you can take a look here and see if there’s anything you’d like to decorate your house with, but if you don’t see…

Friday Fance: For rainy days

In my late night internet traversings I came across Miss Platnum, a Romanian-German singer who combines hip hop, R&B and folk music. She is beyond stunning, right? This is part of a installation work by Finnish artist Johnna Pohjalainen. When I first saw this picture I did a double take because the scale confused me…

It’s nice to share

Look at me, again I’ve really enjoyed reading Hazel Dooney’s blog, and this post in particular hit a nerve with me. On the odd occasion I feel a little shame for being so “out there”, and using the internet to promote myself and my art (also: my politics!) but Ms Dooney reminds me that I…

Five Faves

I’m joining in on the Five Faves bandwagon, as started by the lovely Pip at Meet Me At Mikes. I am tardy, as per usual because I am busy and important (tongue firmly planted in cheek, watch it sprout!) 1. Lady Gaga! She’s challenging and presents thoughtful art to the world. I just like her,…

Friday Fance: Ye Olde Fance

So you dyed your hair purple in the 90s to piss off your parents? You weren’t the first one. This hairstyle won first prize at the Hairdressing Fashion Exhibition in London 1935! This is the candy cupboard that belongs to Such Pretty Things. I think my diabetes got diabetes! But still, it’s a joy to…

Friday Fance: We Can Fance

The Queensland State Library has a flickr account that they constantly update with more and more vintage photographs of life in Queensland. I am fascinated by it, and loved this particular photograph. A commenter pointed out that the photo was entirely staged as none of the fruit are mature enough to pick and the woman…

Love for Michel Gondry

I am pretty terrible about paying attention to things; I don’t go out of my way to watch films or read books… rather I just sort of observe, watch, read and absorb things as they come along. It might sound like a rather passive way to enjoy life, but too often I feel under pressure…
