'Outside In" - St Vincent's Northside - from Feb 2020
2020 HEADS UP!
Hi! Merry and Happy and all that jazz! I hope your last year ended well and your new year started positively. I hope you weren't/aren't too affected by the bushfires.
I allowed myself Christmas day off, otherwise quite busy! Have 3 months booked for Canberra this year - but over 3 blocks. So will be down there Feb/March, May and again in July/August.
Popping over to Perth in Feb to watch my eldest daughter's play in the Fringe Festival. She is the playwright and director - The Wives of Wolfgang - and then it will tour to Adelaide.
Busy busy as a busy thing, with lots of commissions that I said to people I would do later in the year last year.. well later turned up and I was under the pump! And again now preparing commissions for my next trip to canberra.
I currently have work hanging in the The "outside In" exhibition at St Vincent's Private Hospital, Brisbane - so if you would like to see "How Great thou Art" - head to the ground floor of the hospital at Kangaroo Point. I am almost halfway through the next series "All creatures great and small".
Classroom Prayer cloths are expanding, and I now have 2 designs in green and purple, plus a red, white/gold, silver/grey and a blue. The new manufacturing team are continuing with the lovely work of my original seamstress, and I am so glad I am getting my cloths designed here (well wherever I am!)... printed here and made here in Brisbane. I realise this means they are more expensive, but I just didn't have the heart to get Indigenous fabric printed and sewn overseas - I want to support local and I hope you understand.
For those signing up to RECEIVE RAMBLINGS - I attempted an email newsletter which failed miserably... I am now fluffing around with MAILCHIMP so I can do newsletters properly!! Bear with the non-IT person lol.... update - I still haven't done this! - and I still haven't!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have decided I will no longer be doing jersey/clothing designs for one off projects. (Licensing projects excluded). It is really time consuming and of no real benefit to me (sorry!). However if I have already said yes, then I will do your project of course! I will also still do them if they are of special meaning to me.
ALSO!!!! Bookings are well under way for 2020 - I have already confirmed a trip to Canberra for Feb/March (4 weeks now all booked) and again in May (4 weeks now all booked!) and July/Aug is just being confirmed and if so... all booked!) I am looking into a local exhibition in April. I have also been selected to exhibit at ST Vincent's Northside from Feb 2020 as a part of their Outside In exhibition, and my new series will be called "All creatures great and small".
Please contact me though with any questions, as sometimes it pays to think outside the box and I never say never :-)
Thank you! xx
