A creative journal attesting to the profound personal impact of that first painting lesson beneath the big old mulberry tree ... stubby 3 year-old toes squelching into rotten purple fruit; pink tongue curled out with the effort of forging a wet, sticky, paint masterpiece. African storm clouds billowing just above.

"Eggciting" Artwork by Franc Grom
Happy Easter everyone!! Whilst you're all chomping on your chocolate eggs, take a moment to be inspired by the work of Slovenian artist Franc Grom, who drills into real chicken eggs with the utmost patience and precision in order to create beautifully fragile little sculptures.
Hello! Here's a bit about me: I am a 21 year old artist/designer living in Perth, Western Australia (born in Zimbabwe), who has a penchant for collecting old treasures/antiques and anything beautiful that makes my heart sing! I studied Costume and Theatre Design for a year at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) before setting out to complete a Bachelor of Business ... my dream is to combine these artistic and Business skills and own a shop that sells the trinkets and treasures I so love to hoard! This blog is an 'online journal' of the many things that inspire me, as well as a record of some of my own artistic endeavours. Enjoy!
