Hide & Seek, Limited edition of 12.

Ceramics are something I have been extremely interested for a while now, I don’t really know what it is? from the shapes to the patterns to the texture. I think of myself as a collector of interesting objects and I do have a vast variety of odd objects that I do love. But haven’t yet dove in to looking for ceramics until very recently and I think this could just be the start of my illustrations revolving around whatever obsession I have at that moment.

This print is up in my online shop and ill keep you posted on my ceramic hunt and what ill obsess over next.

Pot Head Gocco Print

IMG_5103 IMG_5105 IMG_5116 IMG_5124

Well Hello there Mr Pot head!

I hadn’t made a gocco print in a while and I really wanted to… so I did. Recently I have been very inspired by ceramics and plant life and it’s pretty much the only thing that is on my mind and flowing through to my drawings at the moment so why not let it happen.

This lille guy is a multi colour gocco print with some extra special silver ink! He will be up in my online shop within the week. 

The Handy Studio Stickers

Wow look at all those amazing stickers shaped as hands!!! Oh thank you they are pretty special aren’t they!

I am thrilled to share my new stickers that I had made, I now have something to seal packages instead of using sticky tape and ripping it with my teeth! The glory of having your own personalised stickers just makes you super happy; come on people buy some of my things and you too could share in its beauty! 

Howler Design Market

A few weeks back I did my very first market!!! I know how exciting right? Well yes!

I was so excited to share my work with a whole new group of people and to get feedback in to what people actually like instead of counting the likes I receive on a photo on instagram. I had a bunch of new prints some of which were limited editions. (oh so fancy) I think the most fun I had during the day was that one of my besties Sandra Hennes fellow designer AKA Egypt was there with me the entire day and we got to make paper crystals with the kids. (Craft table pic above).

If you would like to check out any of my prints you can at thehandystudio online shop and if something you have seen here is not up you can simply shoot me an email at thehandystudio@gmail.com

Here are the photos of the work that each student created at the Jump from Paper Craft Workshop.

As I am in love with anything that is made out of paper and that is bright in colour I was completely gob smacked when my students created these amazing works! I always love seeing what people come up with and how different they are to what I would create, I can definitely see some of my style rubbing off on a few of these designers.

A BIG thanks to the Jump from Paper crew for trusting in me to run this workshop and to The Design Kids for helping me get all these lovely people involved. Until next time :)

I am extremely excited to share with everyone the photos from the Jump from Paper Workshop that I held in Melbourne a few weeks back. I was asked by the guys from Jump from Paper to hold a paper craft workshop for uni students to create some fun paper creations for their folios to brighten them up a bit and I think we did just that!

We got our craft on crafting the day away, putting shame on old lady scrap bookers! It was an eventful day to say the least, It was a different from any other workshop that I had taught before, just because everyone had such amazing ideas and everything came together so well.

Mothers Day & Birthday Cards for Mother Dearest

The joy I receive from making a hand made card is definitely 100 times greater than the joy the person feels when receiving it. But in my mums case I think she loves them just as much! Love you mum! x
