About Me

My photo
Geelong, Victoria, Australia
I'm a relatively new emerging local artist in the Geelong region after finally finding some spare time after children heading off to school and selling my business. I'm blessed with a gorgeous husband who has helped me set up a studio at home and supports my time consuming hobby! I love all things nature and dabble in many sorts of art, botanical art, printmaking and fine drawing. I look forward to a new year creating in 2011 and spreading my wings in the art world. I am selling my works at a local market and at a few local stores.

So a busy few months, here is some of my cards, new range of teatowels, a few paintings in the mix and have plans for another pencil drawing of a rabbit and possibly a poppy seed. Sooo many things I want to do....never enough time....

Beginning of Autum

Hello there, Summer has flown by and as I look back on my art life, things have progressed. I've managed to get organised to display my art in a couple of favourite cafes, Winter's and this weekend my works go up in cafe Go. Do if your out and about I'd recommend the coffee at both cafes and fantastic food, and view my art. Also my own market Artefact market coming up on March 16th and then I'm doing Picadilly market for the first time March 25th. Its also time to do another run of some tea towels so stay tuned for some more designs, I have done a beautiful "LOVE" poster which includes my infamous doiley. Available in any colour, selling for $150 framed.
I've also sold a few of my prints to a gorgeous local homeware's shop called Red Pidgeon.

I'v added some gorgeous pictures of some of my works. Have a happy autumn...x

Time flies

 new "love" print
 recent commission

Moriac "makers and growers" market Jan 2012

Already we are in 2012, with plans to display my art in a great cafe called "Cafe Go" in central Geelong. I was a stallholder at a recent market in January in Moriac called Makers and growers market, it was a beautiful day, sold lots and now looking forward to doing the Picadilly market in Geelong, a very different type of market than ours (artefact market), with 80 stallholders!! Held at Deakin Waterfront so hoping for some nice weather. Also plans in the pipeline to do another run of teatowels with some new designs. Also about to take some of my art down to "the Red Pidgeon" a cute homewares shop in my local shopping precinct.

Tea towels

One of my goals for 2011 was to get some tea towels printed and ready for market. I think they have turned out fantastic. If you would like to purchase one or three email me at dimeade@bigpond.com.au. They are $20 each. I have done 2 designs , a birdcage and a dragonfly, in 3 colours green, black and mustard yellow. Printed on 100% Linen in offwhite, oatmeal and flax. Great for mothersday or a special person.
