babies, books and rhymes

Twinkle Twinkle

Through November if you head to Brisbane's Ashgrove Library you can see a selection of my children's illustrations. (In fact it's been there already for a couple of weeks. It just happens someone pulled out of last months slot.) The Ashgrove Library seemed like a nice spot to show off my kids artwork which I started last year. I began going to the library with my little boy every week when he was 6mths for the babies, books and rhymes. Pretty soon I was creating fun and colourful illustrations inspired by the songs, rhymes and the books borrowed. Today I'm happy to say it's my full time job. So if you're in the Ashgrove area pop in and take a look.

All works are for sale. Framed versions can be picked up after the exhibition from Bardon in December, or I can drop them off locally. Prints are always available at www.creative-monsoon.com

Ashgrove Library is located at 87 Amarina Ave, Ashgrove QLD

This month I'll be taking part in another group art exhibition, Elemental Brisbane at the Reverse Emporium in Woolloongabba.

The exhibition celebrates the works artists create using elements from the waste stream, PAPER, METAL, WOOD AND FIBER as the raw materials for their art. I have several pieces including some new collage landscapes made using elements such as wallpaper offcuts, recycled marketing material and of course, my favourite security envelope lining.

'Mountain Waves'

Opening night is October 15th with live music, a re-fashion parade, late-night shopping in the Woolloongabba Warehouse, food and drinks and celebrations. Elemental Brisbane will continue with two weeks of exhibitor master-class workshops as well as a team marble run challenge on Saturday October 22.
