Hello everyone!

Firstly I must apologise for being an utterly hopeless blogger! Once upon a time I used to be with Blogspot and I was so diligent and wrote all the time. These days I seem to have lost the plot! I hereby publicly announce that I will try harder and post more frequently.


OK - to the good stuff! I have in fact been writing this year and wanted to share with you what I've produced. Due to some large life changes (felt everywhere around the world) I have reassessed my art practice. All the classes that I taught in my studio and around the country, and occasionally overseas, have always given me such joy. With this in mind I have decided to put some of my favourite felting methods into booklet form.




The first is Felt Confident - A beginner's guide to perfect felt It seemed a good idea to start at the very beginning (a very good place to start.)

This 32 page booklet is designed to provide the absolute beginner with insights on how to create exquisite wet felt designs. Not only does it cover all the practicalities like laying out and making soap solution, but also how to blend colours of your own design and create patterns.

Felt Confident is designed to do just that! It will give you confidence to create marvelous works in felt or add to your quilting or sewing projects or homewares and much more.



Felt Confident is a limited print run and is available for preorder as a hard copy $20 AUD (arriving late May) or $10 AUD for a digital download.


I am now working on the next booklet in what I hope will be a series. I will post more images as I progress and keep you updated.


I hope all is well in your creative world

Every best wish,

Elizabeth


Dear Friends

Hoping this finds you well. Thankyou to all who have visited the site over the last few months! It has been very satisfying to have all my work collected in one home and to welcome you there. It's especially made me pause and consider collections - defined by colour or shape, medium or style, or purely a random mix.


Over the last few weeks I have been playing with black ink. Just that - black ink. Those of you who know me well know that colour is everything to me, but I can never resist a new challenge! I think it is vitally important to discover what can really be done with a "steady, basic, predictable" medium like this. My temperament is such that I don't want my work to look as if I've just pressed replay!

So to draw out as many shades as I can with black has been really good fun. As each work grows, I can hear stories happening through the marks and dots, swishes and swirls of this inky goodness!


I've opened a new page in the shop entitled Pen & Ink. There will be several new pieces coming there soon.

Lots of love

Elizabeth

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the New Year. I hope you have started out with some great things to plan for and look forward to. I often think "New Years' Resolutions" are a bit hard to live up to don't you?

For me, focusing on things that make me happy and little things to look forward to allow the big stuff to gradually fall into place. The idea that big things can happen quickly is hard to achieve!

Like snapping your fingers and voila!


Here in the studio I have been planning lots of lovely new projects. The first is getting some of my watercolours and acrylics turned into prints. I'm so very thrilled with the results as they are better than I expected! They are all A4 in size and easily fit into an Ikea frame or similar.

I hope you enjoy looking at them. Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions.


Wishing you every possible happiness in 2021

Elizabeth xx
