As she progresses...

 The posters are plastered all over town (thanks to MAD promo). The show is almost here and it's been quite a journey to get to this point.

I lost my mind with excitement when I received my packages of vintage frames hunted and purchased from my new best friend, Etsy.

These opened (as I was relying on them to do) the gateway to inspiration and whimsical-with-hints-of-darkness ideas flooded through and filled the frames!

I've worked on all different types of mediums, ranging from canvas boards to pastel boards and trusty old German etching paper.
 I even found this amazing oval shaped canvas for that instant vintage appeal.

So suffering from a bizarre case of Whooping Cough which has had me house bound for almost a month now, is destined to influence my interpretations of scenes I depict in this show.

Perhaps a little more twisted through fever can't be the worst thing to happen, right?

Well you be the judge... I've thoroughly enjoyed throwing myself out of my comfort zone with this show. I've used more colour than usual, different mediums... I'm even learning to draw things I never thought I'd try my hand at... (never been much of an animal drawer)

Here are some of the pieces I've been working on.
