gira_aurevoir2016

I have been largely absent from this space in 2016… perhaps I’ll try and be a more regular blogger in 2017… only time will tell. I have been slightly more active on Instagram these past few months and I’d love it if you’d come and say hi over there.

In the meantime here’s a pic of my furry best buddy Gira doing his regal, festive thang! Wishing you all a peaceful conclusion to this (ofttimes frightening) year & all good things in 2017.

As September slides into October, heralding the rapid advance of autumn, here’s a quick round-up of the colours of my Dutch summer…

being away at peak seedling planting time meant no vegetable growing adventures for me this year, but my mini rock garden, and the allium bulbs I planted in the autumn last year, put on a very good show!

gira loves this beautiful blue shweshwe duvet cover (made by my super-talented mum)… i suspect it might be because he knows how good he looks on it :)

I recently printed the fourth series in my ongoing 'Wonders from a Cabinet of Curiosities' project. This time the theme is vegetable rather than animal (fabulous fungi in fact 🍄), and what better day to post this series than #MycologyMonday (which, I believe, is a thing on IG!) Swipe --> to see all six 'shrooms in the series. Limited edition silkscreen prints are now available at the always awesome @otherist in Amsterdam (or from my online shop - link in bio) - #screenprinting #zeefdruk #serigraph #mushrooms #fungi #mycology #terrarium #glassjar #belljar #cloche #curiositycabinet #blackandwhite #graphic #drawing #pattern #art #printmaking #get_imprinted - #morel #oyster #nameko #crepidotus #amanitamuscaria #shiitake -
