Kirribilli art and design market

I had a fantastic day in the Kirribili art and design market last Sunday. A big thank you to all the lovely customers for supporting my work. Armed with the cash that i got from the sale, I went straight back to my favorite Indian gemstone shop in the city the next day! Look at what i 've got.....

The Australian Opal is stunning and so is the smoky quartz. The chunky yellow tone green Jade is unreal. I have a good feeling about this batch of gemstones that i brought . I am sure i will get inspire by the nature's energy and made some beautiful work out of itI

Shagpile from sydney put up a treasury list of talented people from Sydney, down under. You should check out Shagpile's shop on Etsy, her handbag is amazing. My Desert flower is on the list as well, Yea! The desert flower earring is one my most loved item! It deserves a good spotlight.

My new business card

Last Friday was a stormy day in Sydney. We've been praying for rain and it finally bucketed down like there is no tommorrow. I was bored and decided to redesign my business card. It looks very graphic and trendy.... i think i like the look of it! While in the mist of my creativity, the phone rang and it was from Gabriel's (my five years old) school.......a mother's worse nightmare, i simply forgot to pick him up. I would never think of myself such an irresponsible mother, but it just happened.....
For the next few days or so, I kept revisiting the "Mummy forgot to picked you up!" event and asked for forgiveness. The whole excercise was to let him expressed his feeling ( worried, scared...) and not suppressed it. I just stopped short of asked him to draw about the whole event!

Anyway, to mend the broken trust, i found all this (knee) holes in his jeans and school pants, so i decided to simply hand stitch them back together.

I found the simple act of mending those holes was very healing to me.

Arctic light

Full of hope is what i feel after i finished this piece. Imagine a tiny flower in spring opening up its petals and the pollen is dancing up freely into the cold thin air in order to catch the mystic arctic light. A belief in the spiritual apprehension of truth that are beyond the intellect.
