Urban Walkabout Perth


The second issue of Urban Walkabout's Perth series was released last week! LOVE the background colour they chose to pair with my illo. She is Natalia Vodianova if you were wondering and she is wearing a Christian Dior/Miu Miu inspired outfit. And what a great launch party,  I got to draw all the invitee's shoes and they got to keep the lil illo as a gift:)

CQ Lines of Style Exhibition

This month I was asked to exhibit at Claremont Quarter in conjunction with Perth Fashion Festival alongside artist and close friend Anya Brock. We both have the same subject matter so the process was a quick but easy one. Organised in 3 weeks I had six 71 cm x 101 cm canvasses to order, paint and deliver! There was a small AM opening for press, CQ and PFF staff and they are up and for sale until Oct 6th. I'm equally obsessed with Daphne Groeneveld and Frida Gustavsson (top left & right).

Marni for BOX Magazine

I was so happy when BOX magazine contacted me to do a little illustration job for their upcoming Spring issue, especially as they requested some Marni illustrations! Consuelo Castiglioni has always been an inspiration to me, the way she uses print and texture is beautiful and her always identifiable colour palette is the best. Thank you BOX mag team! Everyone go grab your copy now!
