My bay tree is out of control, so I threw a big pile of leaves into my aluminium dye pot put it on to boil with a ball of white wool to see what would result. I had read that bay leaves make a yellow, but it is very subtle. I will continue to reduce the dye to see what will come of it.
been trying my hand at some screen prints. If you think you might like one let me know in the comments and I will make it happen.
there is a mythological old hag with no arms or head. She sees through her breasts and speaks from her vulva, Her strength is in her ability to cause those in distress to laugh, a loud healing belly laugh, she does this by telling rude stories and dances
finishing touches of an edition of prints soon to head out into the world. Feeling very privileged to be part of this project. Thanks union st print studio
back in the desert gathering ideas for a new work that will be part of a bigger project next year. Its about loss of significant sites, landmarks and tourists destinations. I've been thinking about what we take away from these locations and what we leave behind in their place..
I'ts been a while since I have done a portrait, but I am really please with how this one is developing. Working from a rusted steel plate and printing with rust.
I've been having some fun this week making paper. I get so much joy out of using plants that I grow in my garden and I love being able to recycle some of my failed prints. It's also kind of cool how one idea always seems to lead to another.
So today I have been dyeing some silk scarves for an up coming market. I love that all I need is lying around or growing in my backyard (and sometimes down the road). Gotta say I'm pretty happy with the results so far.
Well it's a new year and with it comes change. This year sees the end of my desert adventures but my love of the red dirt and all things rusty continue.
I am currently re-working a woodblock for my contribution to 'WORDS' a Fringe Exhibition put on by the H.art Group at the Onkaparinga Woollen Mills.

Got this book for Christmas and I was so excited to see someone else doing what I am attempting to do. Here are my future charcoal sticks, ready to be packed in a tin can and put into the fire. Looking forward to lots of self made fun in the desert 2016
