'Of Its Time'

Last year (once again slow on posts) I was involved in an exhibition with M.O.A.D. It was really exciting to be back exhibiting again and surrounded by some very talented people. I took the opportunity to display my ducks and sheep how I have wanted to for a long time now, on a large scale. I was really happy with how everything turned out and I learnt alot along the way. I thought 'Oh Flock' looked amazing and I now have my own flock on a wall at home.

The lifesize sheep were very tactile, with the gallery cat rubbing past them all the time! Each step in making them was exciting from collecting the old primary school doors and Swandris, to learning how to use a bandsaw and then finishing them off with a giant sanding machine and waxing them. I really did get quite attached, I liken it to having my pet lambs again and getting them ready for Calf Club Day.

Old School

I love my husband...he puts up with alot. I am the artsy fartsy and he is an engineer. I have ideas and he tells me how impossible it would be to actually make them. Although engineers come in handy. Especially when they bring home an O.H.P as they were going to throw it in the skip at his work, but he said "my wife would like that, she likes rubbish".

So me and the kids have been having a great time with it, Jack my youngest has made his own beados invaders game and I have been scaling my ducks and sheep. I love it!!

Now in store..

I am quite excited to say you can now go to The Poi Room in New Market and Kina in New Plymouth to get your very own 'guinipig' creation. I feel very privileged to be selling in these wonderful places, I really love their utmost focus on New Zealand based Art and Design which was a big draw card for me. Both places are deserving of a visit, either to their websites (click on their names above to go straight there) for an online shopping fix, or in person as they are filled with amazing art and design.
I am not loaded up on their websites yet so go in and have a look in store...Go on you know you want too!!
