reCOLLETTEtions

   ART Advice, Upcycle, Revamp, Recreate, lets just get creating!!

        reCOLLettetions is a blog about anything art related but also making things, recycling, up-cycling, recreating, whatever you want to call it. There is advice on how do just about anything with art, including how to deal with galleries, creating bread & butter lines, blank canvas syndrome and much much more.

I am a practising artist with many years of experience both in a practical hands on and teaching aspect, having worked with many artists helping them learn business skills from an artists perspective.

 

 

  • When I die!
    I couldnt resist creating an artwork for this verse - Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive & well preserved body.
    But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, glass of wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO what a ride!' Amen to Boozehag
    Available as prints and cards coming soon

  • Yeah Na! The art of kiwi slang
