live at fringe


Last night I grabbed some paints from the studio and made my way down to help launch this years Sydney Fringe Festival with a  bit of live painting! 

There was a bunch of great bands playing into the night and then little old me making a mess and bringing some Rancho Relaxo to Crown Street. 

Thanks for having me Sydney Fringe! x

so it is


Written in G.O.L.D. and so it is. 

Those big old aluminium UNDERWINGS feathers are rad when floating from the ceiling but they also look peachy hanging on the wall! 

This guy has sold but there's more just like it! Available in Blue, Pink and Gold and in four different sizes at Courtesy of the Artist.

custom creature comforts

CUSTOM - CREATURE - COMFORTS

I painted this custom skull piece for Hugh of Melbourne based design house INKSTER MAKEN

It's a spin off from some of the THIRD. EYE. WESTERN. rams skulls which draws on the clean neutral palette of the stunning INKSTER MAKEN aesthetic. 

If your not familiar with the INKSTER MAKEN designs you should suss them out... They're real pretty and pretty bangin rolled into one!

UNDERWINGS and WORDS




When two artists combine and conjure! 

A bit of banter about the UNDERWINGS installation.

missy higgins . shark fin blues




A couple of weeks back I worked with Missy Higgins to style the wardrobe for her new music video which was released this week. 

Missy has covered The Drones epic track 'Shark Fin Blues' (an old favourite of mine) and done a darn beautiful job with it! 

So lovely to work with you Missy x 

Here's a couple of behind the scenes shots from the shoot.

I'm on a bit of a high after spending the evening at sea with Steve Zissou and the rest of the Life Aquatic crew! 

So you can't blame me for carrying on the nautical vibes into the night with this sailor babe. 

Shout out if you want her on your wall... Good night and sleep tight you salty lovers x

ain't never do


Things you should never do... Well this ain't one of them. 

I have been playing around with the musings of rockstar wordsmith Rach Sorensen of THE JUNGLE PAPER notoriety. 

Just a friendly heads up that Rach and I have been meeting in the shadows, drinking wine and planning our world domination! 
So watch out...

Dusty pinks, brick, bones and an orchid. 

This painting MADE IN THE 80s reminds me to think like a kid. 
It's making me smile on this sunny day in the studio but alas, the little guy is available for purchase if it makes you smile too!
