Steep Learning Curve

January 29, 2012

With a solo exhibition looming in February I thought I’d revamp my Moonah Stand exhibition catalogue with more current work. I really didn’t need to do this but I wanted to go through the process of learning how to make an eBook. My catalogue seemed like the perfect project.  How wrong was I!  Nothing is […]

Exhibition Feedback

October 18, 2011

To understand my inspiration for The Moonah Stand please click on this link: My Moonah Stand Jewellery Catalogue The feedback I’ve been getting is very flattering. I think once people realised the significance of the colours (see also Colour Code) the wow factor came into play. It served to reinforce my resolve not only to document processes but the ideas […]

Tools of Engagement

October 9, 2011

I’ve sat and criticised, then opted to observe my daughter’s fascination with what once was a big beautiful candle. For hours she’d sit and the wax would make its way all over our dining table.

Seed of an Idea

Look on the Bright Side

May 21, 2010

September. So close, I was just waiting for my builder to finish his current job.  Rather than sit back I joined a local (40 minutes away) Gem Club.  It is made up of retired people mostly, who share their skills among members.  It amuses me that I’m considered one of the ‘young ones’ in my late […]
