I'm so excited to finally share my collaboration with the incredible Erin Flannery.

I first discovered Erin's work whilst clicking through a random website in 2007, where someone mentioned the amazing paintings of a local QLD artist. I clicked on a link and found myself immersed in a world of graphic, minimalist, black and white ladies.
I keenly followed her progress, and over the past 8 years (during which a new-found love of colour emerged) we have become pals - no doubt due to the magic of the bloggosphere, in which it's so easy to connect to your peers and become "internet friends" as we like to call ourselves.

To cut a long story short - my love for her work knows no bounds.
I have acquired a few of Erin's pieces over the years and each has a special place in my home.
As such, it became a no-brainer that I should ask her to collaborate with me on the special print above.
Lending her immeasurable brush skills to my pencil work, we have come up with our 'Grandiflora' print - one gorgeous lady with an incredible nest of colour bombed florals in her hair!
I can also think of no better time to post about it than today - the happy first day of Spring.
I mean, wouldn't it be great if we were all going about our business with a swarm of colourful swirls and stripes zig-zagging their way around our heads?

Limited to an edition of 50 only ( + a very special edition of 10 custom gold-leaf embellished prints) you can purchase your very own A2 reproduction via ours shops here:

I'm just so happy to finally share this print with you all, it's been a long time in the making!
I hope you love it as much as we do.

P.S For a little more insight into our collab - head to Almost Famaus for a Q+A with both Erin and myself.


Last year I teamed up with the wonderful Frankie & Swiss to create a limited edition product for their 'Leaf Series'.
One of Melbourne's premiere bespoke textile printers and design studios, Frankie & Swiss created 'The Leaf Series' as a way of collaborating with local artists on a variety of products that could be exclusively designed, printed, and sewn right here in Australia.
My offering is a set of pillowcases featuring my illustration 'On The Prowl' - only this time she has a friend!
Perfect as a his 'n' hers set, these cases feature a saucy pair crawling alongside their feline counterparts.

Available on a made to order basis only, you can purchase for yourself right here:

Time to get WILD. Grrrrr.....


It's been a couple of years since our last collaboration, but I recently had the pleasure of working with the crazy talented Zanita Whittington again!

Our latest venture features the always stunning Sara Donaldson of Harper & Harley, a whole lot of paint splatters, and Archie the French Bulldog. Hence the Parisian spin on the title of this post! Isn't he just the cutest?

I had so much fun getting messy with these images.

To see behind the scenes footage of the shoot, check out episode 7 of Fashion Bloggers which is airing on the Style Network in Australia, along with E! in the US, UK and Asia.
You can also read more about Zanita and her vision for the shoot in her interview with Lucky Magazine here.
