Ceres by myceliae
A reproduction (as far as I can make it), of a 15th century miniature manuscript illumination of Ceres, goddess of the harvest. I painted it using period techniques and materials (hand-mixed egg tempera). The finished piece is mini, 7.4cms square, on wood panel. Hand-ground shell gold is used in the border, though it's very hard to photograph.
Faery Round House by myceliae
Faery Round House
Faery roundhouse miniature - base is approx 17cm in width.
Sculpted primarily in handmade "cold porcelain" clay, papier-mâché and card. It has a handmade & dyed natural felt ground, with handspun & dyed thread embroidery. Internal lights :)
What a labor of love this was, it seemed like it took weeks... and probably did, come to think of it.


Artist | Professional | Varied
I am a Tasmanian Artist and Bookbinder, with a deep-seated love for all things weird and wonderful.
The act of creation is a magical one, and something I fill my days with in its many forms.... a way of expressing myself, of externalising the way I see things in my mind.
Stories are much more than just words, they are clues and signposts.... and painting the stories connects me to them.

My other love is bookbinding. And although it's a somewhat "lost art", it is making a comeback... and I am incredibly thankful to be one of the people bringing the art back into the light.
There is something very special about creating something into which someone will spill their thoughts, dreams, hopes and losses.

I believe in living artfully. There is a special magic in a common object when it is lovingly and skillfully handmade. I enjoy bringing this magic to others, helping them to look more closely and the smaller things easily missed, and to appreciate more tangibly the hand-crafted aesthetic.

There is one quote that I stumbled upon years ago and has stuck with me. It goes:

"Artists create dreams for those who are awake"

That, I feel, is my role as an artist. To remind you of the dreams you lost, to help you look closer at the smaller things, to help you recapture that sense of magic that faded as you "grew up".

My only hope is that I have succeeded in that.

"Artists create dreams for those who are awake"
