Thanks for the sales

I discovered this morning that I have sold yet another “Lest We Forget” T-shirt. Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been fortunate enough to have sold 7 of these t-shirts and a hoodie. To say that I am thrilled is an understatement! I wish I knew who the buyers were so that I could thank you all personally, but until then, I’d just like to say a huge thank you to you all and hope that you might be reading this post. I’d really love to see what these t-shirts look like with actual people wearing them so please, if you have purchased one, feel free to send me a photo :)
Thanks again.

25% off my original artwork!

I’ve run out of room on my walls at the moment to display all of my artwork at the moment. I’d love for some of my creations to go to their “forever homes” so I’m currently offering 20% off for the month of April!
All of my work currently for sale can be found on my facebook page HERE which will also show the prices in Australian dollars.
If you’re not on facebook, I also have my paintings for sale displayed HERE ON REDBUBBLE please message me for prices.

Opening Night "Live, Love, Dream" Exhibition

Friday night saw the opening of our combined “Live, Love, Dream” Exhibition with fellow redbubblers Natasha Hodgson and Jaana Day. Despite the rain, we had almost 90 people turn up to check out the show :)
I’m really sorry that I didn’t take too many pictures as I was pretty busy mingling and getting excited when paintings started to sell! The picture above gives you a bit of an idea of the crowd although I forgot to take a picture earlier when it was even busier.
None of us really were expecting to sell a lot as sales had been pretty slow in the gallery recently so we were quite gob smacked when at the end of the night we counted up the red dots and there were 16!!!! Bit of a record for the gallery and not a bad effort for us “3 local mums”

Luckily …

My upcoming "Live, Love, Dream" Exhibition

I’m very excited to announce that on the 25th January, my joint exhibition with the very talented Natasha Hodgson and Jaana Day will open.

The exhibition is titled “Live, Love, Dream” and will be held at the Lockyer Valley Regional Art Gallery in Gatton, Queensland.

The exhibition will be on display until the 24th February so we would love anyone in the area to pop in for a look and possibly pick up a bargain :)

For those of you who can’t make it, I’ve created a “virtual exhibition” in my portfolio so you can see the 34 artworks I will have on display.
