It all starts with a photograph
Sharon Greenaway’s Studio News
25TH November 2018
I had planned on writing this newsletter for a week or so and having just sat down to it I realise it is, wait for it, only one month until Christmas!
I hope your year has been a good one. We (hubby Bill and I) have had a busy one combining babysitting our grandson on a regular basis with my Arts Practice.
Early in the year I worked with poet Tru Dowling on a piece for Colab 2018 exhibited at the Bendigo Library.
I also attended a Creative Conversations event at the Bendigo Pottery that was organised by the City of Greater Bendigo. It was at this event that I met Lorraine from the Elmore Field Days committee. She mentioned that she would like to feature my work at the event and sure enough a few weeks later I received an invitation to showcase my art for the three day event.
Knowing it was such a huge event I got down to creating a lot of new work for the show, featuring both new and existing designs from my photography of native flora and fauna of the Bendigo Region. I ended up creating some gorgeous scarves in natural fabrics such as cotton, cotton/silk and 100% silk crepe de chine. As well as cushions and bags in linen/cotton. It was a real challenge that tested my design, sewing and public relation skills!
As well as Elmore I was involved in the Bendigo Native plant show where my work was well received.
Maurizio Biasi, manager of the Finders Keepers Cafe in Mitchell Street has been featuring my wall art over the last few months and I have been delighted to have sold works there. Within the next week I plan to also have a range of my wearable art at the cafe. All pieces will be for sale.
So as I said Christmas is only a month away and I would love to invite you to consider purchasing a piece of my art as a unique gift for someone you love or even yourself!
My range of scarves starts from $45.00 for a short cowl neck scarf in organic cotton knit or a short scarf in cotton/silk, and go up to a selection of sizes including a very limited 100cm x100 cm silk crepe de chine range.
All these scarves feature my photographs of Bendigo flora.
