Welcome to my Garden



Last night I exhibited at The Space Between Gallery in a girls group show, along side artists like Lady Skollie and Jade Klara. It was an amazing night and so excited to see that I can watch 4 seasons of The Wire, sew and some how still be apart of a social world.

Thanks for the support friends!



Monoprint and embroidery

Monoprint Mondays.

I have recently taken up a class in print making. Alma from Pangolin Prints in Newlands is a wealth of knowledge, and an wonderful teacher. She gently guides and inspires.
Here are monoprint portraits I did of my amazing friend Thandi, who it seems features in a few of my up coming projects, so I guess its best I call her what she is. A muse. The image is based on a portrait I took of her when she did make up for a shoot with Ora for Boogie Boutiques.



4 kids - Logo design

I very rarely post design work. But here is a logo I designed for an amazing client.


Underwater lover

On the day of the winter solstice, I went swimming at Sea Point pools with an Canon A1. Here are some of moments of that very cold day.

Rollei 35



Somehow I managed to find in my possession a mint condition Rollei 35. Earlier this year at B&H I asked them about the history and the very first camera I saw in their mini museum is the Rollei 35.

The Rollei 35 is a 35mm miniature viewfinder camera built by Rollei. The original Rollei 35, when introduced at Photokina in 1966, was the smallest existing 135 film camera. Still today, the Rollei 35 series remain the second smallest 35 mm camera after the Minox 35. In 30 years, about 2 million Rollei 35 series cameras were manufactured.

Here are a few Ilford black and white images I took with it in the States, and at home, in Sea Point.

If you are interested in some of my scatty words I did an interview with them. Its here! HERE. HERRRRE

Pendants



After months of thumb holding the SA Postal Service finally came through with my pendants from America. I didn't get a decent image of my first one, a palm tree, but Im really enjoying working at this scale. I think with practise I'll find the way to make it look like I imagine them looking in my head.




Something are best got given

I recently bought as many of these mini frames as I could get my paws on so make treats to give away. They all have homes in America now.
