The designs

is a small textile studio in Hobart, Tasmania.

I produce limited edition screen-printed and digitally printed artwork, digitally printed tea towels, hobo-bags made out of natural fibres and some clothing.

The print-designs are based on mid-century wallpapers, textiles and fabrics, but have a distinct contemporary and North European feel.

New 'hobo bags' at 

Easter, a time for gathering coloured eggs by excited children kitted out with cane baskets, while spotting Easter bunnies. A time for the rest of us eating lots of chocolate, Simnel cake, Dutch paasbrood and hot cross buns.

A 'hobo bag' in wool or silk, is just the thing to carry all these goodies to your favourite picnic spot or park.

Car Park Dazzle
'Material Girl' is always an exhibition that challenges me. The 'briefs' are generally a good way of making me tackle something new.
The 2011 theme was 'Women behind the Wheel',
which I thought fitted in nicely with some photos I took in Melville Street car park last year with my phone. 

This was the result, the size is 70 x 70 cm, so neither big nor small.

'Car park dazzle' will travel round the state together with other 'Material Girl' entries and the itinerary is available from Tasmanian Regional Arts.
