The precinct has been transformed into a fabulous lounge with plush textures and gold reflections set underneath a cloud installation, inviting relaxation and luxury.

One of my emotional landscapes “If It Could Last Forever” is regenerated into a decal as a backdrop to the luxurious oasis that 140 Perth have created in Postal Place.

The decal is a large 4 metres x 3 metres backdrop that compliments beautifully the colour palette for the space.

About “If It Could Last Forever”

An apricot sunrise against the cloudy sky. The landscape took on a reddish glow, and the sunlight seemed to double in intensity as the sun was coming up. The magic of the sunrise and all its amazing colours was nearly gone, leaving just the sun brightening a new day.

COAST – AN EVENING IN CONVERSATION WITH LISA MESSENGER

_IMG_2836.JPG

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? May be you have to be a little crazy. May be you have to see things differently.

I am not one to buy magazines very often, sometimes I just feel like flicking through interior magazines at the beach to get visual inspiration but I still remember the day I picked up the very first issue of Collective Messenger back in 2013, I was simply drawn in. Since then I bought every single issue and I still keep them stacked amongst my favourite books in case I feel the need to get back for some more inspiration.

There’s so many motivational stories featured in each issue of Collective Hub so there’s always something that sparks a bit more inspiration that fuels my creative spirit.

When I heard that Lisa Messenger, editor of Collective Hub, was coming to Perth, I just could not pass the opportunity to see her speak.

We met Lisa on a warm summer evening at Coast Port Beach, one of my favourite beaches in Perth.

If I’m not at the studio painting, you’ll probably find me at the beach!

So I couldn’t resist the opportunity to enjoy a drink by the coast before meeting Lisa and take in the fabulous views over the Indian Ocean, a constant inspiration to my abstract landscapes.

Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them.

I am blessed to be able to work with so many inspiring creatives in my industry and to be surrounded by incredibly talented entrepreneurs in my life.

So here’s to keeping inspired. Connected. Empowered. Resourceful. Excited.

Creative and curious.

PROMISE OF SPRING

'Promise of Spring' exhibition launched on Thursday night at Seven Willow Designs studio in Mount Lawley. 

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended the opening on Thursday and made it such a wonderful night!

A very special thank you goes to Sharon, the gallery owner for putting together such a wonderful show, our wine sponsor Wine Winery, Expo Group for the invitations and Donny Pollen for the floral installation. 

For this exhibition I'm very excited to have collaborated with Seven Willow Designs.

Each painting is styled in a recreated home-like scenario rather than hanging up against traditional white cube gallery walls.

For me art completely ties a room together and becomes the visual focal point which can elevate a room significantly. The right selection of art can make a property feel more complete and elegant.

EMOTIONAL LANDSCAPE EXHIBITION

Last week I launched my latest solo exhibition in Perth titled 'Emotional Landscape' a new series of abstract landscapes inspired by Western Australia, the sunburnt country I now call home.  In this exciting exhibition I have used the visually striking colours of the Western Australian landscape in combination with its scale and texture to explore a new place, land and culture.  

Bird's Eye View II , acrylic and 23 karat gold leaf on canvas H 130 x W 200 cm $5 900

The gallery was all glammed up thanks to the beautiful accessories by Perth Style Co.  (bed throw cushions and bed side lamps) and the stunning ombré curtain by Help Love Designs.

I thank you all my amazing supporters who attended the VIP launch and made the night such a great success. The gallery was packed with beautiful people and I hope everyone had as much fun as I did and enjoyed the show! 

And most of all a huge thank you to our event sponsors:

Jonte Designs for the amazing outfit,

Zamora Shoes for those divine shoes,

Firesun for the most colourful rug,

Pemberley Wines for the perfect wines selection.
