Uni Project

Things have gone a bit quiet because I am trying to get into my project for my Masters. It will be an installation later in the year and will basically be an enchanted forest, with links to feminism in fairytale and folklore. Its exciting but daunting. Today I started making my first marquette, the first decision being about how to deal with the walls. At this stage, I am thinking a mural approach with a forest background. I painted the original, then played around with different colour variations. Not sure how I will proceed in terms of overall colour, but am feeling good that I've made a start on the making (been reading for months).

International Teaching Artist Conference 2014

I am pretty excited to be attending this conference and also to have been accepted to present a 20 min Illustration of Practice. This conference is right up my street - art education to promote creativity in the broader community. Hopefully this will also be an opportunity to meet others who sing the same tune.

Moreton Bay Art Awards

Dropped off the two pieces for the MBRAA today. You have seen the sculpture before - Swan Lake, but the digital work is new, called Stairway to Heaven. The awards exhibition opens next Friday night and then continues for a week. If you want a look, it is on at the Pine Rivers Gallery at Strathpine.
