My Happy 50th

By |2020-12-28T10:35:56+11:00December 28, 2020|Me|

(Written 1 year later!) I had an absolutely glorious 50th. With all the social media outlets, I neglected writing a post about my special occasion on my own website. With this freshen up of the website, it is an optimum excuse to create the post now. This event is a significant one – not just because I marked my 50 years of [...]

Off to Venice

Our first overseas trip in 6 years and first holiday since our big life move to Queenscliff (that's 3 years!). Needless to say, I can't wait. I've packed my materials. My Astier De Villate Pencil, spare refill leads, teeny travel water colour set and two drawing journals. Got my phone for reference as I need to monitor the activity and travel very light [...]

An artist in my own residence

By |2018-03-07T14:19:13+11:00March 31, 2016|Curating, Me|

I'm in a huge transition period and it's quite unsettling. It really doesn't help with one's art practice - there's too much shifting and newness to allow me to document a body of work or even begin to tackle a subject. The only recognisable thing in life at the moment is Theo...(a very good thing!). I'm not complaining. I keep pointing out to [...]

I own a gallery – Queenscliff Gallery & Workshop (QG&W)

True! The Opening (excerpt from QG&W's website) We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful opening. View all our images at our Facebook page. Together with our artists, our families, short and life-long friends, and the Queenscliff community we celebrated art and printmaking in our refurbished Wesleyan church. A huge thanks to those who were able to attend and for those who couldn’t, [...]

Magical

Magical! My first ever invitation to a Print Exchange. Thank you Rona Green and thank you Theo for editioning my 50+ prints. What happens in a Print Exchange? Artists are invited to interpret the exhibition theme in any way they feel. A payable fee covers advertising material, framing, exhibition expenses and - the best bit - an archival box for each artist containing [...]

From a Collingwood design studio to Queenscliff Gallery & Workshop

By |2018-03-07T14:06:19+11:00September 4, 2015|Gallery, Me, Printmaking|

Finding themselves at a life crossroad, creative directors Soula and Theo Mantalvanos of ooi - creative communication, decided to grant themselves four months of thinking time on the East Coast of Tasmania. Away from their Collingwood routine, they were able to clarify and plan for the next stage of life, taking into serious consideration Soula's chronic pain issue and related daily limitations. Soula [...]

My art website is back

By |2018-03-07T14:19:13+11:00July 26, 2015|Me, Studio|

Hello, welcome back! My art site is back and firstly I must apologise to those of you who have had some strange feeds land in your inbox during testing time. Hopefully this post will make sense of it all. Many of you might already know, but Theo and I made a mammoth transitional move from our beloved Collingwood to Queenscliff. Not an easy [...]
