SUMMER RISING | ART EXHIBITION & FASHION SHOWCASE

28 November 2014

Wow, what a week we had! My latest exhibition "Summer Rising" has officially launched last night at Gnagnarella Living Space Concept Gallery, with an exclusive bloggers preview on Tuesday night!

For this event I have joined creative forces with up and coming Western Australian fashion designer Ethel and Leo to create a unique art x fashion showcase.

When I first saw Ethel and Leo's colourful creations run the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival I was struck by the bold patterns and the richness of the designs which characterised all Ethel and Leo's silky dresses. I didn't waste any time and got in touch with Jess, the talented designer behind the label, willing to collaborate. 

When Jess saw my paintings she "literally died" (quoting her own words here!) and straight away we new we had to create something special together... Summer Rising was born!

A love for all things colourful and coastal unites us, and Jess's original creations simply-just-perfectly complement my paintings. 

The rooms of my Living Space Concept Gallery were filled with a magic mix of bohemian romance and bold abstract paintings. 

We would like to say a huge thank you to our wonderful sponsors who have supported Summer Rising with yummy treats from Cookie Dough, wines from Rosily Vineyard and La Vigna, Peroni Nastro Azzurro beers, and incredible flower arrangements from Sheridan Tjhung.
