Inside Out Magazine

February 27, 2013

I was stoked to be featured in the March 2013 issue of Inside Out Magazine. I was interviewed by design guru and “Super Foodie” Lee Tran Lam about my work and studio. It was a fantastic experience!

Graphika Manila

February 7, 2013

GraphikaManila_logoS

I’m leaving Sydney this morning to travel to the Philippines as an invited speaker at Graphika Manila design conference which is being held this weekend.
Can’t wait to share my work and meet the the design savvy punters from that part of the world. Looking forward to a few days of travel away from my desk – I’ve been working nonstop all summer on an exciting creation for Google – but more on that shortly.
I’ll report back with some images of my adventures. Manila here I come!

New Platonic images

January 22, 2013

My recent show New Platonic has just come down from the gallery wall so I thought I would get at least some of it up here to share.
Quite a few more of the works have yet to be photographed and I’ll get to documenting this in the way it deserves shortly with dimensions/materials etc.

My starting point of exploration for this body of work was the Platonic Solids and the whole premise of the show revolved around the use of paper only – no glue!
This project has opened up a door into a whole new world of exploration for me which is really exciting.

In the meantime, check out my mates Tanja’s post on the opening night. Enjoy!

David Jones wreath

The wreath I created to adorn the cover of the 2012 David Jones Christmas catalogue is out in the world.
It came up a treat!

I’ll post a more in depth piece about this after I have finished creating my upcoming solo art show at the end of this month. Currently juggling chainsaws.
