NSFW GROUP SHOW AT SPOKE ART SAN FRANCISCO

I was recently asked to be a part of a group show, NSFW at Spoke Art in San Francisco. The show featured over 40 female and femme identifying artists who explored the topic of female sexuality. The varied works included painting, embroidery, neon and prints. Some of the artists involved were Miss van, Laura Berger, Jessica Hess, Petite Luxures, Jessica So Ren Tang, Winnie Truong, Robin Eisenberg, Meryl Pataky, Sabrina Elliot and more. Dasha Matsuura curated the show and you can read her interview about the show in Juxtapoz magazine here. Plus another interview here.

LEILANI

Aloha! A new print is in the store and somehow I forgot to post it here! Following on from China Girl, this is Leilani, featuring all things Hawaiian. The name was inspired by the Hoodoo Gurus song of the same name, taken from their classic 80’s debut album, Stoneage Romeos. It’s still a fave of mine. Leilani is a Hawaiian name that means heavenly flower.

My great grandfather lived in Hawaii for sometime and came back to Australia to design and build his home inspired by his travels, complete with palm trees. It was a very unusual design for 1905. He named it Hale Mauka (house on the hill) and it still stands today.

She is available in A3 size up to A0 poster size. Shown below holding the A2 size. Head to the shop for more details.

There's a new print in the house! The Jungle Room. I've had this girl lurking around but she's finally ready for you in the shop. She prints up big, up to A0 poster size.

Jungle Room

The Jungle Room was my favourite room at Graceland. It was so ridiculously over the top, so I thought she should hang here. More is more, no? Do you think Elvis would approve?

This was my entry for the Global Talent search. The brief was to create a piece of Wall Art with 'Little Terrariums' as the theme. it was a pretty open brief but had to include one word of text. I didn't make the cut but you can see the 50 winners (and all other 999 entries) here. There are still 2 rounds of briefs to go to choose one final winner. Good luck to everyone in Round 2!
