Spring Print Giveaway

A big THANK YOU to everyone who entered the Spring Print Giveaway competition! It was lovely reading through all your responses and an incredibly hard decision picking just one winner from all the wonderful emails I received.

Congratulations to Agnese from Italy who won the "Home Sweet Home" print. Her description of Spring left my heart smiling....

"I think it's mostly a matter of the air smelling different. It doesn't matter if it's early March or late April: spring comes when the air starts smelling thin and green and it doesn't stab anymore when blowing against your face. You just wake up one morning and feel it. The same happens here now with Autumn: the leaves are still green and tied to their branches but the wind already smells like nuts and walks in the woods and handmade wool jumpers. This is the first year in my life that I don't really enjoy the cold season approaching and miss spring and all the hopes and promises for the summer it usually brings. I miss the long walks, the smell of a hundred different flowers filling my head, the sunlight losing its sharpness."

Delightful....

Save the Fraser Island dingoes



'Vegan Warriors' founder and animal rights campaigner Jaylene Musgrave has organised an auction to help save Fraser Island's dingoes. Under the Queensland Government's current management plan the dingoes are being denied access to food sources and are starving as a result.

The auction is being held on Saturday 21st August at the "Rock the Boat" event, Club Envy, Maroochydore QLD. Some of Australia's leading bands have donated merchandise including Wolfmother, John Butler Trio and Xavier Rudd. I have donated artwork along with Mambo artist Reg Mombassa and Coolum artist Leigh Hutfield.
Tickets can be purchased at www.greentix.com.au

Bad form




Not very happy about this... A jewellery company decided it would be a brilliant idea to steal two of my drawings and use them on their necklaces.
I'm sick to death of this happening to artists.
