Beach photo.

Finally after a long wet winter we are starting to get some lovely sunny Perth days. I enjoyed a leisurely coffee on the beach with my sisters and husband. A great way to start the day.

Cake logo.

A gorgeous wedding cake is often the centerpiece of a wedding and usually sits in a place of honor. This carefully planned confection is a longstanding tradition dating back to Roman and Medieval times. Back then a stack of buns was used instead of a multi-level culinary masterpiece, but the symbolism was generally the same. Over the centuries there have been many traditions created surrounding the cake and it still remains an important aspect of any wedding.

Candle Label.

This was a great job to work on. A label for a candle maker. I was really pleased with the finished result. The logo on the left is off centre so my client can use it on two size jars.

Sewing business logo.

This is a logo I designed for a quilter. It will be used as a woven label to attach to quilts. Amazing how detailed the finished result is. The image attached is not the actual label but the artwork.

Vineyard in winter.

We had a fabulous drive to a vineyard in the country today with the car club. It was freezing but lots of fun. I much prefer being cold to being fried.

Trip to the country.

I have just returned from a quick trip to the country to visit my father. It was a beautiful sunny day, freezing but sunny so we went for a drive into the country. It is so lush and green at this time of the year. In summer it is a completely different colour and quite harsh. We stopped at a little cafe called Lady Marmalado for coffee and the most delicious home made cakes. I think we will be visiting there again sometime soon.

Abstract seascape painting.

I have decided to try my hand at painting. I have always wanted to paint in an abstract, impressionistic style.

A few words about this style of art from

Abstract Expressionism emerged in the early 1940s, primarily in New York, where a small group of loosely affiliated artists created a stylistically diverse body of work that introduced radical new directions in art—and shifted the art world’s focus. 

These artists valued spontaneity and improvisation, and they accorded the highest importance to process. Their work resists stylistic categorization, but it can be clustered around two basic inclinations: an emphasis on dynamic, energetic gesture, in contrast to a reflective, cerebral focus on more open fields of color. In either case, the imagery was primarily abstract. Even when depicting images based on visual realities, the Abstract Expressionists favored a highly abstracted mode.

So here is my first attempt. I am not sure if it fits the bill, but I had fun trying. A seascape.

Three horses.

I took this photo on a recent trip to Tasmania. It is a little blury because I had accidentally left my camera behind, so I had to buy another one which I was not used to. Well thats my excuse. It was late at dusk too.

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.  ~Pam Brown

New profile photo

Just messing around trying to create a more interesting profile pic. This photo was taken at our house warming party a couple of years ago. It was a dress in French style theme.  Was loads of fun.

Sewing logo.

I am working on a sewing label for a client. My client has chosen the design she likes from the selection I sent to her. I am still in the process of fine tuning the logo and conversing with the printing company. This logo will be woven onto fabric. Most of my work is printed in ink so this is a fun new project for me. I have a few designs left over so thought I would list one in my Etsy shop. So here it is.

May your bobbin always be full.

The Eiffel Tower.

......Paris is always a good idea...... Just messing around with a photo I took in paris a couple of years ago. I have enhanced it to give it a more vibrant, contemporary feel. A great, unique piece of art work to add that little extra to a room.

Jewellery logo.

 Accessories are like vitamins to fashion - as such, you should use them liberally. 

Please excuse the lack of  quotation marks on the quote above. My computer is being a pain and just will not print the commas ????? Strange. Has anybody else had this problem? Do you know the fix? I guess it will be reinstalling the software. Ho hum. Like I have time to do that!

On line shop logo.

This week I have been working on a logo for a lovely client in Oslo called Mirushe. She is starting an online business selling baby bouquets. A lot of my business comes from overseas so it takes 24 hours to hear back sometimes because of the time difference. Mirushe always got back to me really quickly and I was a bit puzzled so I asked her what the time difference was. It is 5 hours but she has a seven month old baby! Arrrr ........... that explains it. Best wishes to Mirushe with the new business.
