Introducing my new series: La Linea

There are four works in this series. I re-purposed two stretched canvases by removing them from their stretcher frames, then I undercoated them with paint, stitched both canvases together, sewed a different and unique pattern-image on each canvas, then more painting to finish.

Mediums: Acrylic paint and sewing machine
Year: 2022
Size: 31cm x 31cm unframed

I am proud and excited to be a part of the Hunter Arts Network Art Bazaar we have come to know today, which is now held at Lambton Park! Our next market date is Sunday 28 August and the event runs from 10am – 3pm. My works which I will have on display and available for sale in my market stall include a wide bright variety of large framed paintings, paintings on canvas, small unframed paintings and more

Art Bazaar has been held every year since 2002!! When Art Bazaar began back in 2002 it was originally held in Laman Street. Art Bazaar started with an idea from Newcastle City Council and this is how Hunter Arts Network was formed. Twenty years ago Art Bazaar began to develop a loyal following and fan base. HAN is run by a dedicated committee of volunteers who have also worked hard to celebrate all modalities of visual arts and the committee that has come together continues to do an amazing job to make this happen.

Stallholders are selected based on the originality and quality of their wares – so there’s plenty to capture your imagination. Bring the family or meet up with friends to wander the stalls to find unique gifts or treat for yourself, and meet the local Hunter makers and artists.

After what has been some patchy Covid years by purchasing direct from the makers you’ll be supporting their hand made work and you get to take home a one-of-a kind treasure

All stallholders are members of Hunter Arts Network. The event showcases their unique, handmade artisan goods including a wide variety of carefully selected stalls featuring premium local artisan handmade products. Art Bazaar has cemented it’s reputation since 2002 as the event that showcases the Hunter’s creative & vibrant art community that locals & visitors look forward to several times every year. Food trucks, coffee and entertainment is also on offer.

Our remaining 2022 dates:

Hunter Arts Network Art Bazaar at Lambton Park on Sunday 28 August 2022

Hunter Arts Network Art Bazaar at Lambton Park on Sunday 27 November 2022

These events will be conducted in accordance with State Government Covid-19 restrictions which may change or apply at these times

Update on new series

So pleased with how this series turned out – there’s four all up and this circles piece made me dizzy on the sewing machine going around in circles. I re-purposed two canvases by undercoating them, sewing them together, sewing the patterns then more painting to finish.


They will all be for sale soon once they are ready to hang

It’s been decades since I’ve seen this! If you also grew up in the 80’s you’ll find this guy familiar, as well as his temper 🙂 Looks like he wasn’t amused by 2020 either lol

Today’s Hunter Arts Network Art Bazaar at Lambton Park was a huge success!

Thank you to everyone who attended Hunter Arts Network Art Bazaar today at Lambton Park and supported our local artists and artisans – we had such a huge line up of incredible makers. We were thrilled to see our first 2022 Art Bazaar attract such a great turnout. Although the day started off soggy underfoot this soon dried out and we were very lucky to have break from the rain with plenty of sunshine giving us and the huge crowd a pearler of a day and I sold my “Empty Shelf” painting

Here’s some photos from today:

“90 zips” wall hanging now complete!

“90 zips” is #2 in my zip wall hanging series, #1 was “121 zips”. “90 zips” was made using all of the blue coloured zips and is also adorned with ocean-themed charms.

I sorted hundreds of zips by colour for my zip wall hangings after I had sourced them from op shops around Newcastle and Lake Macquarie in 2007 (before Covid).
