Here are a couple of vintage bats (or paddles?!) which I painted with a selection of fruit, flowers, a vegetable and a caterpillar. I hadn't planned on the black one, but the first bat above was so much fun to paint (and it sold so quickly!) that I thought it might be fun to see how the composition would look on a completely different colour. That one has sold now, too.
Thanks again to either Miss Pen or The Earwig for collecting me these beautiful vintage bats from Tasmania.
This blog is both a record of my work and an attempt to contribute to the vast inspiration that thousands of other creative people have given me via the internet.
I worked for many years in the fashion industry, designing prints, textiles and developing products for children. I now work as a freelance illustrator and make a variety of work under my own name. Some of the things that I make can be found in my etsy shop and in galleries and stores around Australia.
