I’ll endeavour to update this blog more regularly now that I have a little more time on my hands.
I’ve been asked to showcase my work for RAW ARTISTS on Thursday, September 19th!
RAW is an amazing, worldwide community created by artists for artists. They showcase visual art, photography, music, performance art, film, fashion and hair and makeup. It’s an amazing networking opportunity for those involved in the arts as well as a pleasant night out for those interested in these fields.
If you would like to support me and other artists from melbourne, tickets are available here (for $15).
I’m so excited about this event! Hope to see you there.

This was a really fun shoot to undertake. I initially drew inspiration from Andy Warhol’s iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe, though what resulted was a little more special.
Jess is an absolutely gorgeous model and very fun and easygoing- in short, amazing to work with. Mark likes to think outside the box. Together, we deviated from the original plans and decided to make this more bubblegum editorial. Something surreal, yet still tangible and identifiable.
The make-up took a ridiculously long time as I had to colour match the contours, highlights and foundation in an airbrush to a bizarre shade of bubblegum. Jess looked sunburnt until the eyeliner was applied near the end of the application. Glamorous. However, she was an extremely good sport as I styled a waist-length wig into a pseudo bob and fiddled with the base colour until it looked right.
Thanks so much to both of you for your extreme patience and creativity that you added to a half-baked concept I brought in to you both.
What do you think of the shots? let me know below.
Just a quick teaser shot from my shoot last weekend with Jess Mm and Mark Hillyer.
Waiting for the rest of the shots to arrive and I’m seriously excited.
What do you think? Want to book me for a shoot? email me and we can organise it 🙂
….Well, actually, a few job interviews. My computer has been in and out of repair for the last six odd weeks and I’ve had a few jobs which for various reasons I will not be sharing on my blog.
This Sunday (the 21st of July), I will be working with my good friend Ashley on a Film Noir style short film. She will be styling (major wardrobe envy!) and I’ll have the task of creating beautiful 40s style hair and makeup looks on the actors.
Next Saturday (the 27th of July) I shall be shooting with Mark Hillyer and Jessica M to create some interesting art together. Several looks and I’m posting my inspiration board to Pinterest, so take a peek. However, I can safely say that one main look I’m hoping to acheive is inspired (not a blatant copy! I despise plagiarism!) by Andy Warhol’s iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Deborah Harry and countless other people and inanimate objects he screen printed during his time in The Factory.
This is very personal to me. Andy Warhol is one of my idols. He created an artistic space for so many people and revolutionised high art by refusing to conform to it… or to create his own brand of high art. I want to be someone who can turn the ordinary into high art and make the already fantastic into tangible, memorable, iconic pieces of artwork. So hopefully I’ll be able to pay homage in a way that I feel is appropriate.
In any case, I’m still alive and will hopefully be posting more often now that I’m -touch wood- using a computer that works once more.
