A friend of mine bought one of my Knit print tea towels at the June Handmade Markets with the intention of using it as upholstery fabric. She has just sent me some 'before' and 'after' images of her ottoman:

Ive just managed to get a copy of this article which was published a couple of weeks ago in the Canberra Northside Chronicle - it discusses my inspiration for my work 'Modern Tree (Hope)' which was created for the Footprints Exhibition.

My work has been selected to be part of Interwoven, an annual exhibition curated and coordinated by the Design Institute of Australia.
I drove up to Sydney on Wednesday to set up my works for the show. I was allocated a small room which had three walls - I decided to transform the space into a Lounge Room using my fabrics, as curtains, upholstery fabric, cushions, lampshade and as wall art.
I also commissioned an Creatif Upholstery to transform an old chair I found using some of my knit fabric - he did a fabulous job! The lovely Jane from Honi and Lemon, also transformed some of my Gingko fabric into a lampshade (you can see it in the top photo - more pictures of this to come, I promise!)
The exhibition is on at the Gaffa Gallery in Sydney from 16 - 27 June 2011.
Gaffa Gallery is in a beautiful heritage listed building in the CBD and is spread over three floors. There is a small cafe on the ground floor - delicious aromas of ground coffee spill out onto the street and waft through the space - along with a divine gift store also on the ground floor. It is definitely worth a visit!
Ill be going back for the 'Meet the Makers' on Saturday 25 June 2011. Maybe Ill see you there x

The Canberra Weekly Magazine has published an image of my Modern Tree (Hope) as part of an article on the Footprints Exhibition I am currently in at the Belconnen Arts Centre.
The show opened last Friday evening and it is definitely worth a visit.
