Bird vessels

I’ve been very busy over the last few weeks making 2 different types of vessels. One kind is using coloured clays then adding laser printed decals, and the second is with coloured clays and printed using laser transfer printing. Two very different kinds of print making on clay. Some will go to the Brisbane Grammar…

I’m selling online

I’ve upgraded, and reopened my Etsy shop BasedinNoosaStudio.

Do check it out and maybe find a little gift for yourself or a friend. You can save on postage…

Landscape vessels

So now I am lying low as I go through a healing journey for a sarcoma cancer in my thigh. New directions, vessels, strong shapes, and…

Cooloola printing in clay

Watercolour, pencil and ink

  I always knew I would work in 2D one day. It has taken several years to get to this point, and after several failed attempts over the last few years (I didn’t enjoy what I was producing) I seem to have finally found the combination of media and techniques I love and want to…

Ecoflicks Awards Lizards

Ecoflicks awards have been my latest project. Based on the Ecoflicks logo of a little lizard caricature, these lizards were fun to make – all 8 of them.
