Updates & My New Online Store

Long time no post.

I thought it was time to drop by and let you know how things are. 

In the past few months I have rapidly finished my first year at uni, working my two part time jobs and trying to maintain my crazy brain with creative ideas to share. With some stress of the year came with a interesting health diagnosis which has really forced me to slow down and learn a lot about my health which has occupied a lot of my time also. 

I've recently been working solely within the medium of screen printing producing photographic halftone screen prints and white tees with chosen sentences and photographs. I recently Participated in the Jive Print Fair which was held in Aukland selling my prints and Tees which was very humbling experience with the support which followed and being able to get my works out there. The Jive Fair was the second Fair I've participated in ( The first being Zine Fest 2017 ). Being side by side with motivated artists makes me want to work harder and harder and I'm really looking forward to hopefully being included in more events coming up.

Exciting news!! I have now added an online store to my site! Which contains my prints and tees and anything that may come up. I've really enjoyed producing hand-made works to be shared and experimenting with garment printing was a fun project that I hope will continue. My ' Spoon Fed ' Tee in a blue serif type is now available on my store. The saying is a reflection on our generation which is referred to as ' having it easy ' or being constantly given opportunities and things in general. A conversation about how we take some things for granted in our lives but also on the other hand a little bit ironic. The other saying ' Tendency to Apologise ' which basically came from a self refection about how much I say the word 'sorry' and how a lot of us use apologising as a way of reassurance. A black simple script font hand screen printed on a white Gilden Tee, I thought it would be a nice one to share. All my limited Prints and Tees can be found on my shop , - Here's a little discount code for you - JUST4U when you get to the checkout.
