Interview with House of Theodora

House of Theodora is an online community of “women who make, create and design for sexual expression”. I discovered them quite recently via artist Cameron Cox, who posted about her interview with the site a few weeks ago. It sounded just my cup of tea so I started following them on Instagram and days later they emailed me and asked if I would be interested in doing an interview. The power of social media! Of course I jumped at the chance!

Check it out HERE. Hope you enjoy! :)

Cover artist & feature for Non-Compliant Quarterly issue 1

I’m really excited to have been chosen as the cover artist for the inaugural issue of Non-Compliant Quarterly, a new publication based in Australia “Existing at the intersection of culture, art, activism & thought leadership”. I also have a few pages featuring my work inside. The topic of the first issue is Censorship; something which I feel very strongly about as I’m sure many artists do! I’m very much looking forward also to future issues that are planning to focus on important topics such as racism, ableism and childhood trauma amongst others.

From their website: “We believe that cultural producers have an important role in our collective humanity- to document, to challenge, to create a beautiful reflection and to critique our culture.”

They are also committed to sharing the profit between all contributors, which is a welcome change in an industry that often expects that artists contribute work for free (or “exposure”) and which I think is particularly conscientious for a new and independent publication that by it’s very nature is going to have extra hurdles when it comes to promotion and advertising itself.

You can read more about the magazine and it’s mission statement and purchase a copy (digital &/or print) on their website HERE.

They also have a Patreon page where you can purchase copies and help support production costs as well as be part of a community of like-minded individuals!

Creative Bloch magazine featured artist

I have a little feature this month in the latest issue of Creative Bloch magazine with 4 pages of my work.

I also recently added a few new all-over-print t shirt designs to my store on this site and reopened my Etsy store to list my recent series of watercolor studies.. the first set sold out almost instantly and I was a little overwhelmed so I decided the second set would be easier to manage through Etsy’s automatic shipping calculator. As always, I’m also happy to arrange direct sales through email if that’s your preference!

Pikchur Magazine featured artist

I have a lot of exciting things coming up over the next month or so! A few things haven’t been announced yet but this one has started doing the rounds on Instagram so I think it’s safe to share.. I’m excited to be one of the featured artists in issue 4 of Pikchur Magazine, with 4 pages of my work.

The print edition is available to pre-order now HERE (along with more information about the contents) for those who may be interested in a physical copy. I believe digital downloads are already available.
