Lately.........




Here is some of what I've been doing...... Exploring the wonderful world of the medieval beasties. Mermaids were originally seen as monsters and often depicted in medieval beastaries with wings and feathered legs ending in wickedly taloned toes.


These Beasties are cavorting their way over to "Drift" at Point Lookout on Stradbroke Island.

Spots have a habit of migrating . My new favourites are these spotty butterflies. I like the craziness of the spots and butterflies. I had the crazy, clashing patterns of High Victorian Chinoserie in mind when I started these.
They will be featuring at the Young Designers Market , this Sunday at Southbank. Please stop by (especially if it is rainy!)
