So Sleaze magazine in Berlin recently featured my work in an article all about knitwear in their current issue which you can see above!!! My project that I carried out in Japan, 'Colourful Creatures are Often Poisonous' ,gets in on the action with my garments which were produced using knitted, crocheted and woven handmade paper.
With all of these weird and wonderful adventures my work has taken me on over the past couple of years I've recently cracked out a spot of travel writing for Wanderlust. The pieces cover the notion of using art as an alternative way to travel as well as a bit all about my trip to the Hello Kitty cafe in Taiwan a few weeks ago!
If you fancy a peruse of these you can read them HERE and HERE!!!!!
That's about all for now....It's back to the sewing machine!

I can't believe it's actually been a year since we cracked open the doors of 'Fish and Chips, Twice Please?!'...doesn't time fly?! Since closing said doors for the last time back in September it seems like only yesterday we were surrounded by chip forks in the realms of lovely Vienna.... so me and Polona recently were invited to chat with the guys at 2010LAB at the Dortmund U about 'Creativity's impact on Society' for their wonderful 'INTER VIEW' series! The feature is now live and you can read the full story HERE!!!!
While I'm on the topic of last year's extravaganza...I thought I would share some never seen before behind the scenes pictures of Team Fish and Chips in action and what goes on after hours!!!!
Anywayzzz that's all for now...I'm off to test out my awesome new carrot and bunny teapot....

I wouldn't usually write about the fruits of a latest shopping trip but, I actually found my dream shoe so I felt this warranted a new blog post... I've been waiting for AGESSS for these beauties to finally hit the shelves and was straight out to buy them as soon as they unleashed! I'm super excited about them and they are now my new fave pair of shoes...they're made up of all my favourite colours, plus they make me tall and they are the closest to the shoe of my dreams that I could ever imagine!!! Apologies for the contrived photos with my nice crochet blanket as the backdrop...
These gems are from New Look's latest collaboration with students from London College of Fashion and these particular corkers are designed by Ruth Jones... I LOVE them and wish I could get away with wearing them EVERY DAY...although I don't know how well they would go down in Tescos...
Even little Tango approves...bet he wishes he had a matching mini pair...
In other news I made the mistake of doing a spot of hand sewing outdoors today in the GLORIOUS sunshine....only an hour in and I was burnt to a crisp. Yes it hurts.
Love and Dream Shoes!
