It’s time for a 4 week challenge – I’m feeling a bit dry creatively…so I’ve decided to do a portrait sketch every day for the next month.

Cake 2

This was my first official solo event styling gig, and I absolutely loved it. The brief was to create a vintage rustic afternoon tea setting for a wedding at Alberton House in Auckland. The bride and groom were super laid-back for a couple who were planning their wedding in only three weeks, so it was a really awesome experience. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this lovely afternoon possible.

Goals: Keep Learning and Growing

Skirt

So it may not seem a big deal to anyone else, but I just finished  6 weeks of night classes doing a fashion course at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design. I learned how to draft a pattern and construct a tailored skirt out of linen. This was one of the goals I was talking about in a previous post – to keep learning and growing. The aim is to extend the sewing skills and start making some more complex pieces soon.

Iona College held an art auction/exhibition on Friday night to raise funds for the school. I was delighted to hear that my Thistle wallpaper and Teen Wifi Drop-out pieces both sold. Thank you to the curator – Lizzie Russell for asking me to be involved in this successful event.
