Flashes of my past in the future exhibition

My work for the Flashes of my past in the future exhibition at M16 is a continuation of exploring images sketched of my cottage.

The sketches of domestic scenes have been translated into delicate embroidered objects. Sometimes the thread is almost invisible until illuminated by strong light – like a memory which almost forgotten, flashing back in a moment of clarity.

Jocelyn Rosen's photographic work is taken from her life over the last six months. It features portraits of friends and family as well as moments from travel to Japan, and the Gold Coast. The images are dark, complex and explore fleeting moments and observations of the unusual. Jocelyn likes pairing images and playing with contrasts in sets and
sequences. The portraits in this exhibition are paired with textures or landscapes or details. They speak to each other on an emotive level, providing context and mood.

We have planned a joint exhibition together over years. With notebooks at hand and over cups of tea or wine, ideas have been shared, discussed and forgotten, laughed away, or simply put on the back-burner. It is exciting for us to finally share some of their ideas at this point and exhibit our work in a gallery together.

Although using different mediums, the work is similar due to its personal nature, its fascination with form and texture, its considered nature and the fact that it features scenes from the interior life and domestic landscapes. We hope this is the first of many future collaborations as artists and friends.

Award winning Tea Towel designs

Ive been keeping these designs a secret (which is jolly hard to do) for the past couple of months.

Thankfully they were launched a couple of weeks ago as part of the Canberra100 launch at the Canberra Theatre a week or so ago.

Yay! Now I can finally share them with you :)

The Canberra Icons tea towel is designed so that you can display them side by side, the design being continuous across the two tea towels.

And the cheeky I heart Canberra with a love heart coming out of Parliament House. Some of you may remember my I heart Canberra that has a love heart sitting on top of Telstra Tower which was the predecessor to this current design.

Although they are not available until the end of October, you can place your orders now and to see the other winning designs by visiting the Craft ACT website or by emailing project [at]

CarveSketchPress Ceramics

Images by Art Atelier
carvesketchpress is a series of works that explores different mark-making techniques on ceramics. 

Hand thrown clay carve pots are dipped into a coloured slip which dries leatherhard before being decorated using scraffitto (carved) techniques. A glaze finishes these works, ensuring the pots are  functional as well as decorative.

An image is sketched directly onto the hand thrown porcelain pot and then subtly shaded using water colour techniques. sketch pots are glazed with celedon on the inside creating a beautiful green hue which offsets the blue imagery on the outside. 

Inspired by prehistoric potmaking methods of pressing soft clay into reed baskets, press pots retain the highly textured negative space left by the weave. A variety of coloured glazes celebrate the tactile qualities of the pot.

Each pot designed and made by me is organic in shape, and being hand built each one has its individual and totally unique characteristics. 

Available exclusively at Evie Presents.

Centenary of Canberra - Legacy of Good design article

Yesterday the program was launched for next year's celebrations of Canberra's 100th birthday at the Canberra Theatre. 

Behind a large plywood 100 structure resting on the steps of the theatre, amidst the song and dance routines, the Canberra memorabilia products were launched.

 To coincide with the launch a double page spread appeared in September's Art Monthly magazine. The five designs, which until now have been kept secret, have been revealed.
