A few weeks ago while I was in the city, I impulsively decided to check out the The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art at GOMA and QAG. While I was a little rushed (I had about 45 minutes), I managed to see nearly all of the artwork from the exhibition.

It’s been a while since I wrote a favourite artist post but this one only just caught my eye recently (well sorta – explained further down) and she needs to be talked about! Today I’m looking at the wonderfully whimsical, colourful and spring inspired work of Katie Daisy.
The Semi-Permanent Creative Conference finally rolled into Brisbane last Thursday after an unfortunate rescheduling from July. It was worth the wait for the 8 talented speakers that came to share their stories, experience and advice. This was also a special year for the SP as it was their 10 year anniversary (5th time in Brisbane). Despite the disappointment of the video intro saying ‘Sydney’ (Brisbane pride!), the day was, as always, insightful and inspiring.
Tis the season! It’s a shame Christmas only lasts one day, should be a week-long holiday! This has probably been one of my busiest Christmas’s because I’ve been putting together little handmade Christmas creations for everybody ^_^.
I’ve been busy making cards and getting everything ready for Christmas however I also had time to make a gift tag for one of my dear friend’s birthdays!
I first discovered Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photography back in university when his work was used as examples. Despite analysing his photographs, we never really got the chance to learn about the man himself. When I heard the Queensland Art Gallery was holding an exhibition of his work, I told myself I had to go and see it. Luckily I managed to get down to the art gallery on the last day ^^;.
This artist’s website has been sitting in my inbox for months waiting for me to write a blog post about him. I discovered Adrian Valencia back in August and he was featured in that month’s Inspiration Collection. Since then I’ve been through his portfolio and blog and he’s now one of my new favourite artists!
I’ve been busy making cards again! This time I had two special occasions within a week of each other – Father’s Day and my anniversary with the boyfriend. Both of these dates totally crept up on me so I didn’t have a lot of time to make them ^^;. I think they both came out alright though!
