As part of the Ignite the Park Festival in Vic Park I was invited to design and install a window display which would feature my orchids. I collaborated with another artist who yarn bombed a wonderful branch. I yarn bombed a table and many orchids. A professional photographer has taken photos of the window which I will feature later but here is the crew ready for take off.
I was thrown a challenge to create a wedding corsage to go with a beautiful dress to be worn by the Mother of the bride. This is my first attempt at such an important addition to a special day outfit. Encouraged by the result I am now open to creating more.
It is always inspiring to meet young people who know what they want to do. Bobbi and her sartorial mother visited my stall at Pinjarra last time and this weekend. Check out her blog http://bobbi-jane.blogspot.com.au/ for pictures of Bobbi wearing a Lulu Tissu beret. Very stylish.
I will be at the Pinjarra Festival this weekend 31 May - 1 June at the Edenvale Complex. The weather forecast is OK . Perhaps it is time to buy that scarf and beret as the Winter chill arrives. Hope to see you there. If you purchase from my stall you have the opportunity to enter a competition for one of my sculpture brooches. Please let others know it is on.
It’s OK to pat your self on the back and a couple of weeks ago I did just that. I had an order for a large number of brooches and only two days to make them in which was already a busy time. Needing a variety of designs I came up with a new idea which I am happy to report worked. So did the photos.
Mother’s Day is only a few days away. Perhaps you would like to purchase one of my Fantasy Orchids available at Terrace Art Framers in the Smart Street Mall Mandurah. Open 7 days a week.
Each orchid is created around an experience or place I have travelled.
They are joyful.

I have thrown my hat in the ring so to speak....again and will be part of the Stretch Art Trail launched this Sunday. It is a great event that supports local artists and local businesses at the same time. I am lucky to have my work showcased at Terrace Art Framers in the Smart Street Mall along with Jean and June Pastore and Emma Blyth. You can walk the Art Trail from this Sunday. Maps are available in Terrace Art Framers.
To celebrate we are holding a meet the artist event on Thursday 24 April and guess what you're invited. Below is the invitation we are serving light refreshments and would love you to come and share in this event.
