Christmas was lovely and I've enjoyed some watercolour painting in my free time.
I usually work with acrylic paint but there's definately something magical about watercolours. Using water to spread the tiniest spot of paint over the page.
This has been an emotional period for me but I can take pleasure in the games of my little foster kittens and delight in the company of my darling daughter.

Gotta love the handlebar moustache


This funny man is my lovely dad,
I miss him and I'm grateful for
his kindness and his smiles.

Beautiful elephant

We had a firing of the kiln recently and I'm so pleased with the results. I made this elephant in white stoneware and then used Japanese transfer to create the beautiful blue pattern. Now I'm making a series of these beautiful elephants inspired by Bharti Kher's beautiful elephant at GoMA.

Tim's squid


I've started making felt badges to fit my friends' requests, for example, my friend Tim asked me to make him a red
and white squid. I love this little character's hat with beading.
I hope Tim will love him too.

Inspired by Japanese character Daruma, (the round red man whose eyes get painted at New Years), this little fellow is a little overweight as a brooch but he's very cute and cuddly.

Boz attack!



This is Boz, one of our foster kittens,
he's busy stomping on the computer keyboard
to try and get my attention. Boz is a loveable rogue
who'll kiss you and smooch you to death.

family and Prize winning

This is Luna and Tae lifting a bus at the Gallery of Modern Art.
We are so lucky to have Tae Moon join our family at the moment. Today will be her first day at school with her big cousin Luna. Tae is such a lovely girl. Tae also got a prize for great drawing at SupaNova.
Here's me with one of our cute foster kittens, happy ending, he's already been adopted.
Our art show at CBD Gallery, Luna and I have our work side by side in this group show "Psychadelica". Akiko was there to capture the moment.

Hurray, 3 cheers for Luna! Luna won 1st prize in Qld Games drawing competition and runner-up in SupaNova drawing competition at this year's SupaNova:Comic, Games and Sci-Fi convention. I was pleased and surprised to also get runner-up, "honourable mention" for my drawing in Qld Games competition. It's got me thinking about a career in computer games, art work of course, not programming. I'll post our winning pix soon.

We're caring for 2 kittens, Moon and Raz, and right now they're running along the top of the couch.

Scoots the APT 5 mascot

This little felt badge of Scoots the turtle is my little friend. I wear him at work and we enjoy lots of compliments. Scoots is the mascot for APT 5 (Asia Pacific Triennial). I didn't design the mascot, just my badge, but he's so cute, I'd like to make lots and give them to all my fellow turtles at work.
