Make time to play 2022

This year, I want to make a conscious effort to allocate more time for play and experimentation. Be it a new medium, a new subject, or a new technique, the only prerequisite is that I have fun during the process.

I'm so excited to be included in this year's Untitled. 2022 annual group exhibition at Traffic Jam Gallery in Sydney. I will be launching two brand new artworks alongside five other artworks.

A road trip to Canberra

A road trip to Canberra

Need a a short creativity break? I love taking trips to Canberra, it’s an easy 3 hour drive from Sydney and you pass through some of my favourite stop-offs. I like stopping by beautiful Bowral for a coffee, or a cheeky burger and malted milkshake from Bernie’s Diner in Moss Vale.

My Budding romance with Rainbow Lorikeets

On special occasions my window becomes a ledge for a few feathered friends. Sometimes a magpie, a butcherbird, occasionally a Sulphur-crested cockatoo. My current favourite are the cheeky and colourful rainbow lorikeets, a species of parrot found in Australia.

Meet the Artist: Emma Kidd

Meet the Artist: Emma Kidd

Today we chat with Emma Kidd, a Sydney based artist who makes articulated imaginary creatures with the humble paper and paint. I have always admired artists who can draw from their imagination and felt in love with Emma's creatures the day I discovered her work. Everything she does seems so effortless and yet I doubt anyone can replicate her style easily. Her creatures look like characters from another time, innocent beings trapped in Dante's Inferno. 
Portrait Drawing: Abby

Portrait Drawing: Abby

I have never been confident with drawing portraiture and as a result, have always avoided it where possible. This year, I've decided to face this fear head on. You can never have a perfect piece of drawing but you'll never improve if you don't practice. 
Pet Portrait: Lewis

Pet Portrait: Lewis

Friends in my street adopted Lewis from the RSPCA when he was about 4 years old. No-one knew his past history but he’d had a bad time as he was aggressive towards strange men. The young couple (his new family) both worked long hours and he was left at home. He suffered from separation anxiety so tried to escape their yard most days. Often I would see him “setting out” on an adventure along the street and I’d go after him. He loved this and turned it into a game I’m sure.
