Hey sister, SOLE SISTER!

A couple weeks back I got a message which, at the time, brought simultaneous feelings of excitement and self-doubt. I was invited to join the Sole Sisters Collective, a group of talented local designers/artists who combine forces every couple of years to put on an awesome display of art.

Without a thought, I accepted.

A few years back I was fortunate enough to exhibit as a 'friend' of Sole Sisters Mixed Tape exhibition that was held at the Old Mount Gambier Gaol. This was the start of me experimenting with 'art' so-to-speak. So it seemed a no-brainer to me that, with the support of a group of women who admire, I'd join them to see what amazing stuff we could create together, and more-so, test my boundaries again.

The Sole Sisters Collective will hold the Patternista exhibition at The Main Corner from 12 February 2016.

The Sole Sisters Collective comprises Kristyn Jones, Bianca Richardson, Anna Mitchell, Mel Horton and Julia Reader.

I am one!

So yesterday, unbeknown to me at the time, I turned one.

As in one whole year in business.

And boy has time flown by (they say that happens when you're having fun). I have been busy which I am grateful for, and learning the many facets of running a business first hand. I now grasp the word 'reconciliation', albeit initially, that was the dirty word of the English vocabulary.

This second year in business will be my first test with BAS (gasp), so wish me luck. But I am up for the challenge, as what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all my wonderful clients, past and present, for their support over the past year. It's simple - without you, I would not be celebrating this milestone.

There's plenty of other people that have been an ear to chew in the process, who have offered valuable advise, and to you also, you have my sincerest thanks.

So here's to another year in business!

Thank you. x

Art in the pipeline

I'm excited to announce that I'm in the process of creating some new artwork for display in Mount Gambier (dates TBC). My pieces will be for sale, along side the work of other artists from the region.

After some wonderful interest to my bird cards, calendars and prints, this new artwork will commence the start of a new line of work. In time, I will have a whole bunch of new and cute 'things' for sale through my Etsy shop, including a new 2016 calendar (for those who have already enquired!).

So stay tuned while I gather inspiration and get all creative :)

A big thank you!

The end of the year is approaching, and that means five months in business for me. Wow - that time has just flown right outta here! I am incredibly grateful of everyone that has supported me over this time, and will be back in 2015 ready to take on the world.

I sincerely hope that everyone has a safe and happy festive break. Take time out to be thankful for all the good that surrounds you, and try not to get caught up in the all the Christmas hoo-hah!

I will take a break from 5pm Wednesday 23/12, and return guns-a-blazin' on Monday 5/1.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Willie Wagtail at Library Market

Howdy all. A friendly reminder that the fabulous Library Market is happening again this Sunday 14/12. This will be my last Willie Wagtail market until this time next year.

It's only 11 sleeps 'til Christmas, so use this as your chance to buy your last-minute pressies (or if you're like me, the start of your Christmas shopping) and support the wonderful local talent that we have in our region. The weather is set to be glorious, and I am excited to be part of it.

I will have my Willie Wagtail calendars for sale (which have been a hit - thanks to all that have supported me). I am also fully stocked with my range of cards, and have some more framed archival prints for sale. And new to this market is some Christmas gift tags, which are quite darn cute if I do say so myself!

What: Library Market
Where: Mount Gambier Library & Cave Gardens
Time: 11-2pm (I will be ready to rock from 10am)

See you all there :)
