Exhibition This Weekend

Back in Australia, but with a bout of the dreaded flu literally taking the legs out from under me i have done nothing, and finally feeling vaguely human again.

First things first. This coming weekend 26-27 November there will be an exhibition of work by four different artists at a house and garden in Gembrook. Entry is free and  we hope that you will think "made by the hand of an artist" for special Christmas gifts. We had a lovely downpour of rain last night so the garden will look refreshed after some very hot days! There will also be plants for sale. I would love it if you would spread the word as far and wide as possible and if you come  as a result of my blog post, please let me know on the day as I am interested to see how widely this information spreads.

It will be the largest exhibition of  my work and sale of my work, I have had for quite some time in Australia, and will include all my new banksia work including the Babbling Banksia which was a project for the  latest edition of Quilters Companion: Great Australian Quilts.

This work measures 70 cm  x 126 cms long and is for sale if anyone is interested for $900.00AUS inclusive of postage, and if bought via the internet an additional small gift will be yours as well.

Linocutting on-line
I will also be running my Linocutting on-line course starting in the first week in January 2017. This course is great for beginners to the medium of linocutting. It is a fun way to create your own prints- , and the course is designed to guide you step by step through the various skills needed to create a successful linocut. Over the years of running this course I have seen some wonderful linocuts being made. The  price of this on-line course will be $60AUS. Class notes are delivered by way of pdf files over an eight week period, with each lesson designed to hone and improve your skills.I will set up a private FB group for discussion and sharing and discovering other linocut artists!

There is also still time to order your Aussie Bush Project panels and of course my new angel panels. I have printed off  a wide range of different colours in the angels ( see my previous blog post for information about this)
