Tattered Inspirations

Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Thank you for dropping by, we aim to encourage and inspire you to do something different out of your comfort zone, in new and exciting ways.

two more pieces- I am rocking!!

Okay here we are again - in less than a week and I have finished two more huge pieces - these babies are 100cm across so they really make an impact

While I was in the Snowys recently I took a photo of an old shed - weathered with the years and probably not storing much any more

Well I knew when I saw it I would have to use it to do a mixed media piece - so yesterday I did it - lots of paper and bits and it took me a while but I am so pleased with it - there are some closeups too as the first pic doesn't really do it justice .... you certainly need to peer into my paintings to see hidden meanings

The full painting
'Weathered through the years'

Fence line and hardware

And this was from a photo in Gladstone - at the Botanical Gardens. The light in the mid afternoon glowed across the water and the waterlilies in flower made a spectacular display. The old mallelucas with their fantastic bark were bowed down towards the water and everything was hot and still.
Shimmer in the Early Afternoon

I will let you into a secret - this is real bark - I know it looks real - because it is

Detail of the waterlilies

I love using papers with patterns and you can see things if you look closely at my works - that is the fun of it all....

Thanks for looking - I hope you liked them - if you can leave a comment that would be great - I really appreciate a comment or two....
