I have been working on some new tattoo clocks, which will be available to buy from Boom Gallery in Geelong when they're done. I don't have any tattoos myself, which is partly why I get a great deal of pleasure out of painting these.
I would consider the funny lady creature you can see above, though. She was inspired by a nineteenth century tattoo diagram that I found on Pinterest.
During Melbourne's "hot week" I painted some mirrors at home. (It is reported that the studio hit 100 degrees F, but the way it seemed, I would almost have believed 100 degrees C.) These fellows are now in the (pleasantly 20 degrees C) studio, drying off. They will be in my Etsy shop by this time next week.
This blog is both a record of my work and an attempt to contribute to the vast inspiration that thousands of other creative people have given me via the internet.
I worked for many years in the fashion industry, designing prints, textiles and developing products for children. I now work as a freelance illustrator and make a variety of work under my own name. Some of the things that I make can be found in my etsy shop and in galleries and stores around Australia.
