crystal beetles

I've been working on something new for the past couple of weeks with kaleidoscopic photography and more silhouettes - this time bugs! Bugs and beetles creep me out, especially when they decided to run across your top at a dinner party like last week! But, they are pretty amazing when you take a closer look. So I thought I'd combine some of the kaleidoscope images of rocks, geodes and crystals I'd been putting together with some cut out shapes. Who knew bugs could be so pretty. Prints are available from my etsy and hard to find stores and I'm busy working on more creepy crawly bling bugs.

I'm working on adding some more Aussie birds and animals too so watch this space. All available from creative monsoon and please get in touch if you'd like something custom such as your child name adding to a print.

Today is International Day of the Girl, a day dedicated to raising awareness about issues concerning gender inequality around the world. It's also the launch of ‪#‎makeforgood‬, an initiative from etsy Australia with Plan International to change the world for girls. I've created a special edition print just for the event and will be donating 50% of sales to the Because I am a Girl campaign. "Every cloud has a silver lining" is available from my etsy shop as a 10x8" print will real hand painted glitter.

3D hand sketch

Here's a little doodle I've been meaning to try for ages! Sketch around your hand lightly onto a page and then draw lines across the page curving over the hand. It creates a really cool 3D effect. I decided to turn mine into a little mummy and baby artwork. Getting a 13month old to sit still and have his hand sketched round was definitely the trickiest part. Plus he decided to 'contribute' to the work by throwing water at it.
