My Ideas

My most recent idea is to create a body of work based around the Banksia - for those of you who don't know they are an Aussie plant. Up to tonight that was pretty much all i knew about them. I love the fruit of the plant that are hard and woody and resemble cones.

I came across a chair in a shop in Murwillumbah that had been refurbished covered in hemp with a print of a Banksia - I would've have loved it but couldn't justify the $1200 price tag. So this chair has inspired me again to pull out my banksia drawings and start creating.

I've stumbled across some banksia inspired works on etsy - click them for more info

If anyone has any ideas please share and hopefully this will get me inspired to create.
