Hang your artwork

Getting your artwork up on the wall can feel a bit like a Herculean task. It can  be over whelming just trying to work out where to put things and then there's the issue of getting things at the right height without leaving twenty million holes in your walls! There are some tips and tricks though for making it easier for you. I also have an online guide that has even more tips and tricks...

Tips and Tricks:

1/ Group your artwork first in to cohesive bunches. Mix it up with illustrations, painting, design pieces and photography. Different sizes, different frames. Just makes sure that the images work with each other through their general tones or subject theme. Bright or muted colours, they just need to be similar.

6/Once you've done this you can rip of the paper and hang up all your artwork. Perfect!! 

Here's the link to the booklet on hanging images that has some other ideas too... Displaying Your Artwork

A little winter project is finally on the shelves this very day! A range of greeting cards can now be exclusively found at the cafe and gift shop 'Interlude' on Queen Street in Timaru.

A few months ago I asked my friend Lynn, if she'd like to collaborate with me on the project. I really like her photography and with her own creative and unique style, I thought it could be a great combination if we worked together... Just today, we in fact took a couple of shots of the exact same tree - just to compare. Sure enough, they are completely different from each other, and completely us. Lynn's is on the right and mine is on the left.

    I love your photos and cards. I'm coming home for a visit in September and I am going to come into your shop and buy lots of Christmas presents to bring back to Australia. I love supporting people following their passions and talents. Well done!

    I absolutely love your cards. Shame u aren't selling them in Tauranga. I am sure a lot of people in the Bay of Plenty would just love them. Keep up the great work. Well done!

    Totally in love with your photography. Wondering if you sell them online or in digital format ?
