Hand made, Hand drawn...

Bella Rosa- chalk pastel
Breaking news!!!
I am using a new crowd funding platform to help pay for my exhibition costs- check it out and see what fab rewards there are if you help me mount my work and show it on Monday- the best reward is  Coffee with Fi- where I buy you coffee, gossip with you and draw you in French chalk pastel right there in the cafe!
I lied...I said this next post would be about the character development of the wee bug in ‘Far Far From Home’ the new book by Elizabeth Pulford and myself. But actually I have a couple of things coming up this weekend that I need to post here instead. The wee bug can wait; the book is due out in October and I’ll give it some more space here in a week or two.

I’m showing my skills and showing my art and I don’t mind if you look!

Firstly on Sunday 3rd June I am running a masterclass at Handmade in Wellington. For those of you who have never been to Handmade, it’s a fabulous celebration of creative arts and crafts and full of classes for everyone who wants to get back to making stuff. Just up my alley!
I’m demonstrating clever gift ideas using reused and upcycled materials as well as some unique ways to accessorise your gift wrapping with items from around the home or garden.  The class is getting pretty full, so if you want to join me, book your place now.

The next thing is an exhibition:

Bountiful Burlesque!
Feathered fancies and titillating tulle; colourful art of the Wellington burlesque scene.
I’m a long time participant in Dr Sketchy Anti Art School drawing sessions. This is a collection of my portraits and drawings from life in the performance spotlight. The exhibition will be complemented by a selection of exquisite nipple pasties by the wonderfully talented stage and film costumer Cathy Tree Harris. Shake your tassels and enjoy the show!

Deluxe Cafe, Kent Tce, Wellington
4th-17th June
