After many requests, I have decided that now is the time to start ...

50’s+ ART

Keep the second Thursday of the month free for a painting day in the bush.

If the weather is bad we will retire to my workshop to become very creative.

The idea is to encourage retired people to develop their creativity and enjoy a day’s painting.

Cost: $20 per day for those needing tuition, free for those just wishing to join a group and paint.

Where: “Myrtleford” 307 Brushabers Road, Jennings

How to find “Myrtleford”: 07 46843308 (if help needed)

What to Bring: Any paints you have. Preferably acrylics, but just bring along whatever you have for the first day and we will work with those. I have acrylics on hand that can be used. Dont buy anything until we discuss your requirements. Some brushes (any you have),but please don’t buy Crazy Clark's brushes as they lose their bristles, water jar, rag, old clothes, easel if you have one, medium size stretched canvas, or canvas board, or sketch book (heavier quality paper).....these would be available at Crazy Clark's, lunch, chair. I will provide morning and afternoon tea.

Tuition will be based at beginner stage and will be focused on such things as composition, tonal values etc and not on mediums, so you will be able to try many different types of mediums and discover which are your favourites.

FIRST DAY: Thursday March 10, at 9am (Qld time) for a quick cuppa and a 9.30am start. Finish 3pm, back to the house by 3.30pm.

Call Sue for further information or to book your spot! (07) 4684 3308.

Twisted & Tangled 2011

After the success of last year's 'Twisted & Tangled' event, we have decided to do it all again this year! ... and it is gearing up to be quite the event!

Showcasing regional textile artists, 'Twisted & Tangled' promotes the wealth of talent we have in the area. It is a fantastic night out with the girls, and entry cost includes a champagne and nibblies throughout the evening. The food was just devine last year, thanks to the wonderful crew at 'Mason's Wines'.
This year's event will be on Friday April 1, 2011 at Mason's Wines ... with the added bonus of our designers having their work on display and for sale on the Saturday and Sunday as well. So if you can't make it to the Friday evening catwalk show, make sure you drop by between 10am-4pm over the weekend.
Last year, I created a range of 'Totally Twisted' scarves (as can be seen in the image above). This year however I have gone with a new approach ... and am producing a range of silk ties. I have provided a sneak peek above.

A busy start to 2011

Well, the Show is over for another year, so I am back on track again now, gearing up for another busy year.

You can find me at Stanthorpe's Market in the Mountains tomorrow, from 8am til noon. Come along and see some quality Granite Belt art, craft and of course, fresh produce. It's always a great morning out.

I am also busy, getting ready for another Granite Belt Flavours Market at Southbank in Brisbane. After all the devastation with the flooding at the beginning of the year, it is great to see Brisbane getting back on its feet. If you're in Brisbane on Sunday March 13, feel free to drop by and say hello. I will have a wonderful new range of shibori-dyed scarves available. Each one is just so unique and mini works of art!
I will also be running another silk painting workshop at the end of this month. There are still two places available if you are interested. Please email me at or call (07) 4684 3308 for more details, or to enrol.
