For the Love of Mountains

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!

Soft Things

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~

New Cushions

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!

Exhibition Opening Night

I had a really great time last Friday night at the opening of my exhibition, Animaginarium.  Surrounded by my dearest friends, and many lovely people who came, I felt so blessed and grateful to be able to create works and share them with others.  Here are some photos of the night, taken by the lovely owner of the gallery herself, Madi.

Exhibition & a Workshop

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!
