Ladies night... meow

"A sailor stole my heart" as been packed up and a number of pieces are going to some good homes. Artifice store was great to work with & I have another different type of project teed up with them in July of this year. I ended up with an award from Art in Public Places, Hobsons Bay City Council one for "Best use of Space"
Receiving my award from AIPP
If you missed the show I have a few pieces that are going to be hosted at  Artisan Books & also at Quirk & Co over the next month. Follow the link for details!

Article about the show that appeared in paper
So what else have I been up to? Aside from working and teaching I've been working of a series of four portraits of iconic women for an upcoming show at at Artboy gallery on Greville street. I was pretty keen to take part as one on my favorite publications was going to be in attendance, crew from Curvy are going to be there on opening night.
Draw no dudes was the theme... "FanBoy vs ArtBoy: Ladies Night" at ArtBoy Gallery, should be a fun show as it is a pop culture base gallery and it is also an open call. 

Love these sort of shows especially with the fan-boy element - it's the first one I've taken part in but I have attended a few of these shows in the past and they are great even if you aren't really into art. But for me it is a chance to get my geek & my draw on!

I chose ladies of music as my starting point, of course being a child of the 80's I went for my four favorite, most iconic stylish ladies in pop culture and music. Annie Lennox, Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry & Grace Jones in iconic poses. Rather than just being a portrait I gave them a feline bent, meow! I re-imagined them as domestic cats each in their own distinctive outfits. Borderline crazy cat lady, to be honest probably truly crazy cat lady.
Below are the pieces before framing and yes that is a glitter background you spy!

Opening night is the 24th of May 6-8pm & see below for details!

Pop by & visit!
