Im not afraid to admit that I would go gay for Satomi from Deerhoof, she is amazing!
Satomi is a great performer her outfits rock, a real lover of textile, colour and pattern.
On another note I am totally digging this song by Wavves at the moment, its a beach day today and this makes me feel good!
I feel like I have reached a seminal point as an artist and maker in my life. I want this to be the most beautiful thing I can achieve, I want to live freely and half the time I wander around in a dream.
There is nothing wrong with not having a 9-5 or a steady income, this really is your life and you own it, peace out!

Exciting news I will have some work in a forthcoming exhibition at Aspex Gallery in Gunwharf! More details to follow soon…
This week is going to be party central, what with the Strong Island 3rd Birthday celebration on Thursday and then the preview of Working Title at Aspex on Friday! It’s bound to be a bit of a boozy couple of days. So I was looking at handmade decoration. Simple, cute and stylish.

The first ever sticker I put on my sewing machine was an APAK one, the first of many stickers!!!
Im also really fascinated how soft toys and animals translate into Japanese cinema, I know I dont normal post vidoe clips but these are really interesting…
I am trying at the moment to get a Residency or research trip to Japan. If you know anyone that has spare sofa or floor they can let me sleep on please let me know. I have applied for a few things and put some feelers out there so I will let you know how it goes!
Heres some of my bestest J-art stuff.
Anything from the adorable and talented Hello Sandwich…
The amazing Mogu Takahashi, his toys inspire me so much!
I get most of my fashion style from Japan street fashion. Japan Streets is an acepage for inspiration.
I have been snap happy today, there are some pics of my little house and a dress I have made for myself. Sadly you can see all the dress because I cant photo myself whole! I will try and get a better dress pic though!
