I was so delighted with my purchases in Japan I even took the time to photograph them (yes a little obsessive but thats me). I was in awe of the amount of craftsmanship evident in the products available at the various beautiful stores I visited. Their attention to detail and presentation skills were truly admirable. Working in an art store and being surrounded by art supplies all day has helped me develop a growing appreciation for well made quality materials and Japan is definitely a forerunner in this field.

I recently bought a square journal and have decided to devote it purely to colour experiments as I feel this area I tend to avoid in my work. Here is a few pages I have worked on in the past few weeks. My friend Katherine Jago recently spoke of her desire to study textile design in Melbourne in a couple of years. The thought of this was very exciting as enrolling in such a course has crossed my mind before as it seems like a great way to combine multiple passions I have. Although who knows what the future holds... I wish I could study a million things!
Recentemente ho comprato una quaderno e ho deciso dedicare tutte le pagine a colori esperimenti perché usualmente evito usare colori differenti nel mio lavoro. Ecco alcune pagine lavoravo nelle ultime settimane. La mia amica ha detto che vorrebbe a studiare disegno di tessuti in Melbourne fra due anni. Questo pensiero era molto emozionante perché iscrizione in questo corso sarebbe combinare varie passioni dei miei. Ma desidero a studiare un milione cose differente!
