Etsy Night Markets

I'm getting ready to host a stall at the Etsy Christmas Pop Up Markets as part of The Rocks Night Markets.  Looking forward to selling on Friday, 21 November-- should be fun!  If you're in Sydney come by and say hello :)

Bondi Beach Illustration

And in anticipation of upcoming warmer weather (yay!), I've been in a giddy mood.  At Bondi the other day it felt almost like summer time!

I've added some brightly-coloured Bondi Beach cards and prints to the shop:

Sydney-Themed Watercolour Illustrations

With all the travelling this year, I still often find Sydney to be as charming as when I moved here. Lately that's been coming out in my artwork in a revised style. I'm developing a Sydney-themed series, starting with the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The Harbour Bridge includes the ferry, purple jacaranda blossoms that will be popping up along the suburbs in late spring, and a kookaburra for personality. And what's Sydney without a picnic? We love our parks and beaches! I've added a curious cockatoo and some Aussie wine and cheese a the picnic across from the Sydney Opera House.

You can check them out as prints in the shop here.

Tasmania

I finally sorted through our Tasmania photos yesterday!  It seems to be the most diverse of the Australian states in terms of landscapes and climates.  One minute we were collecting shells on the beach, and the next minute, up in the mountains in the snow!

Savannah Map

I have a new wedding map to share: Savannah has heaps of beautiful and quirky "low country" imagery to draw from, so I was excited to paint this one.  I tried a slightly different style by taking out most of the line work I usually rely on and keeping it light and airy...

Coastal Walk

And speaking of walks, Coogee to Bondi is still fun even in winter.  Can you imagine living next to the water and surfing after work here every day?








Walking


I've been in Sydney how many years now, and I still love walking in and around the city.  There's always some new street lane I haven't noticed before, a cafe I haven't tried (and we're definitely foodies here!), or the light just hits the harbour a different way-- makes for good exploring :)

Vivid Festival 2014

Sorry I haven't been so good about blogging lately (I try not to post custom work for private clients too often for their privacy.)  In the meantime though, I've shared some photos from this year's VIVID festival, with digital media light shows, night markets, and interactive installations all around the city.  Love it!

Walk the Harbour Bridge

It's getting dark earlier as days switch between warm and cool well into our Southern Hemisphere autumn. It's perfect walking weather, so I set out along the water from the north heading south over the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
