Sew-Walk-Draw-Design-Repeat As for most people on planet earth at the moment life has changed dramatically around here during the past two weeks. But we’re lucky, we have space to walk the dogs and for each of us to hide away from each other when we need to. I’ve been enjoying starting some unusual projects. AtContinue reading “Getting by at home”
Australia is experiencing our worst bushfires in history and the news from Mallacoota was some of the worst. It is harrowing and difficult to get your head around. It’s hard to know what to even write under the circumstances. There is so much commentary on how to donate, whether or not to send goods orContinue reading “Magical Mallacoota”
I made this! The holiday season always seems to creep up on me at an alarming rate in Australia. The kids finish school and the weather starts to warm up so we all hit the beach and forget that Christmas is coming very soon! I did manage to organise myself a bit this year though.Continue reading “Happy Holiday Season”
I ran a festive cake decorating workshop with High School students.
A tea towel designed with a recipe for chocolate brownies
This one was made for a friend’s 40th. It had fresh raspberries cooked inside it and it was delicious! The icing was cream cheese frosting. Definitely my favourite cake so far. Bare Cakes also got their own FB page!

But that’s a differentContinue reading “The Anti-advent Calendar!”
‘Monster’ for The 52 Week Illustration Project Another cake!

The chocolate cupcakes were made for the class at school. They are completely gluten free, dairy free, nut free, colour and preservative free. NotContinue reading “More cake creativity”
Whilst I was painting this cake I was listening to the news on the radio. It got depressing after a while. The half hourly reminders that Tony Abbott is using every tactic available to him to block marriage equality in this country. It’s shameful and embarrassing. But this is a blog about illustration, not politics.Continue reading “Love Cake”
In the interest of diversifying and doing something different but still very arty and satisfying, I have been having a lot of fun with my friend Jane recently making cakes! Not something I ever really thought of getting into, as my baking skills are limited to chocolate brownie and only if I can get roundContinue reading “Cake!”
