I’m excited to announce that my originals and a selection of prints are now available for sale at Mockingbird Domestics here in Austin.
I really enjoyed my visit to the store yesterday — a really tightly curated collection of design pieces, vintage collector’s items and work by local artisans. There’s lots of delightful treasures alongside worthy investment pieces. I bought myself a couple of silver-dipped vintage knives — so romantic.
They have an ethos of hand-picking and developing good relationships with local artists and that’s definitely something I deeply appreciate and respect.
& other than that, here’s some of the things that I’ve been up to in my studio this week…
1. Hummingbird Commission
I really loved working on this piece. It was a different scale to what I normally do (which tends to be either minute or massive) but I think it worked really well and I’m definitely going to try more of these little foresty moments.
Plus, it is for some of my dearest friends and so I was full of love-full thoughts when I was cutting it. They commissioned it to honour the memory of the two babies that they miscarried, so obviously this was a really precious thing to be a part of.
2. Goose & Girl
I am trying to wrest some intentional illustration into my working week and so I don’t lose my game. This image has been in my head for a while now and so it was satisfying to get it down. She clearly needs her own diorama scene though don’t you think?
3. Still with the ship…
Yup, I think that this is now officially my longest time investment in one single piece. I’m hoping to get it finished by the end of next week but in the meantime, I will be cutting and drafting, drafting and cutting….
