Feature in Etz Magazine

This week I am super excited to be featured in Etzcetera Magazine’s newest feature, WIWORN (What I’m Working On Right Now).

Here is the snippet that I shared of my latest artwork:

And here is the completed artwork:

This artwork gave me so much joy, from beginning to end. The intricate layering of the dressmaker’s tissue, the effort of cutting and texturising the leaves and the manifestation of a wonderful female figure on a solitary swing brought waves of excitement and giddiness.

She truly is a sign of where I am going artistically.

Despite all the painting classes, I am constantly drawn back to my love of collage and working with paper in all its many forms and functions, and discovering (not inventing) new ways to manipulate it.

I am looking forward to making more works of art with this technique!
But I ran out of dressmaker’s tissue paper…eek! I ran into my local Endeavour Foundation shop and found a stack for $1/packet.
But I didn’t have the heart to tell the shop keeper that I wasn’t in fact making clothes, but tearing it all up. She was too excited to see I was buying up patterns.
Darn. Must get over that guilt.

If you like what you see here and would like similar in your home or office, contact me at to discuss size, symbols, colours and all artistically-happy-bits.
