I used to know how to knit when I was a child, and it would probably come back to me if I tried it again. I might as well just do it with paint, though! When I looked at my new painting from a distance, I thought it looked exactly like the dots were knitted [...]
I´ve been thinking some of my paintings look a bit crochet-like, especially because of the 3-D dots. Following this line of thinking, I painted "Patchwork" - in fact not following much thinking, as to be honest I paint with the flow! :)"Patchwork" puts together 14 geometric pieces. I photographed this painting in full sun and [...]

I am between paintings at the moment... Just finished Orange Baiana, which I did while Carnival was happening in Brazil. I love living in Australia, but Carnival is a time I really miss Brazil! The fact that the country completely stops for four days. I know, that's not good for the economy!! But you know what? [...]
From far away you almost can't tell which one is the original and which one is the copy! The prints are that amazing. They obviously aren't 3D like the `real`thing, however they are just as bright. And the best thing is that the quality of the image taken is so good that it's possible to print [...]
I am in the process of scanning my artworks to get prints made. Museum quality prints, they will look fantastic. Stay tuned!!
