I love mountains and I cannot lie haha. There are so many mountain-related pins on my Pinterest board, and also my Tumblr is full of them. There is just something so majestic and mystic about mountains that just makes you realise how small & insignificant you are (and all your problems too!)

And since my mountain ring was the best-seller on my Etsy shop, I decided to make some mountain necklaces…just so those who don’t like wearing rings can wear them too! Like the mountain ring, each of these mountain necklaces are handpainted with love…making each one unique! Hope you like it!
Winter is (almost) upon us here in the southern hemisphere…and the cold weather often means more eating (more like bingeing!) to battle the cold & to keep my tummy cosy. Here are some of my recent favourites from my Pinterest board, Treats for the Palate. Enjoy~
Green tea & white chocolate tiramisu | Peanut & sesame mochi balls
Raw coconut & fig slice | Apple cider French crullers
And with a blink of an eye, Animaginarium came to a close on Sunday. My artworks at the exhibition are now up online for viewing on the Corner Store Gallery’s website. I am truly grateful for such a lovely response to my first ever exhibition.
And guest what? I’ve listed the remaining paintings from the exhibition onto my Etsy shop. I’m going to leave you with my favourite piece from the exhibition.
The weather this week has been so beautiful – blue skies, small puffy clouds (sometimes none at all), beautiful autumn colours, soft warm sun…and breeze that is cool but not the winter-y type. It tells of the upcoming cooler season, but still warm enough to not succumb to layers of clothing. I came upon a few items on Etsy today that is just so relevant to the feeling this weather has given me. Enjoy~
Flowers | Whale
Narwhal | Woodland creature
There are some new cushions in my shop – and they’re inspired by the artworks I created for my exhibition, Animaginarium, which is currently showing at the Corner Store Gallery (and ending this weekend). These cushions were super fun to make – they started off as watercolour paintings, which I then scanned and had them digitally-printed. After that, it was all handmade in my studio – all the cutting, sewing, and stuffing. All with love. Enjoy!
The annual Million Paws Walk is happening on the 17th May. Cuwie (my dog) told me she wants to help (ok, fine, it’s my idea), so I have decided to donate 20% of each Dog Ring sold between today and 17th May 2015 to the RSPCA.
My exhibition officially starts today…in about one and a half hour! Gosh! I’m crossing all my fingers & toes and hoping for the best! If you’re in Orange or anywhere nearby, do pay a visit to the gallery.
I’m also going to be teaching how to make a blinged up diamond garland at the gallery on the 7th May (Thursday), from 8-10pm – click here for more information. There’ll be plenty of fun, and drinks & nibbles!
My exhibition starts this Thursday! I am starting to get really nervous, and the weather is not helping – it’s been raining cats and dogs non-stop and it feels like winter. *brrr*
But it was a really beautiful day when Madeline of the Corner Store Gallery came over last week for a studio tour shoot. It’s now up on her blog – do check it out!
Cuwie had a really great time being photographed haha!
