It will be recorded over the next two days, but images are beginning to appear on their website.

Or direct from our website

We have now sold two large canvases of this work (as at my last update, several weeks ago), plus photographic prints and greeting cards.

I’d like to publically thank Thomas LaBadia (Florida) for his work in our collaboration, without him we wouldn’t have gotten so much success. Loves ya, Huni.


I’d also like to thank the models: Lara, Mimi Monroe, Cherry Lush, Georgia Ruby, Hedy Bell Nova, Kelly Ann Doll and Sc…

Rookwood Studio is having a GREAT year.

I joined Red Bubble in December 2010, since then I have made 31 sales and had over 19,200 views… makes my heart almost pop with pride and joy. I could not speak more highly of Red Bubble and it’s wonderful band of artists. Everyone has been kind and very supportive. I even have an upcoming gallery exhibition with two other people from here….Tis AWESOME.

(If only I had had gotten a dollar per view, I wouldn’t be a hungry, happy artist)

This week I have gotten a few features and I thought I’d share them with you. Thanks for everybody’s time….you rock my world!

Beyond Scribbler Too

I first saw the Scribbler programs on a external blog late last year, but it wasn’t until I saw the great work of others (on RB) that I started to play with these apps. After now being addicted for weeks to Scribbler I thought I’d go back and find all the other drawing apps, that I had read over and not paid much attention to.

I managed to find the blog and thought may be others would also like a distraction from all of the scribbling……so here they are….my gift to you.


Draws random bubble-like drawings, which you have marginal control over.

Today I have broken through the barrier and made my first sale....

As images were released of my gallery event in Harajuku, Tokyo, people started coming at me from all directions.

I have now had my first sale on Red Bubble.

Without utilising Red Bubble…and Facebook I would not have gotten this far.

I thank all (facebook and) Red Bubble people for their support, guidance and patience……you are wind beneath my wings.


Blessed be, every one.

What makes me tick?

Often I’ll be speaking to someone new, telling them about my art ….and we get to an awkward point in the conversation where I have to try and explain what Tim Burton, crashing into a graveyard, surrounded by a couple of ravens has anything to do with my art.

So here is attempt to explain what brought me to this point in life.

At age 3, a Hungarian artist took me under her wing and taught me how to draw disney characters.

My Mother was always an artist and is now a semi-famous author and playwrite. Age 10 I won my first art award…actually two.

At school I studied sewing, woodwork and art. My woodworking skills were overseen by my grandfather who was a master craftsman, he helped build Macquarie University. I love power tools. I am in the middle of carving out a huge s…
