I always have a variety of artwork pieces available in our studio-gallery 601mvr and have works available on-line and through Maleny Additions and Jo St Baker’s Studio-gallery. However some folk want something that they saw in my portfolio but has been sold; or something that suits their space, their business or their event. Over the past five years I have taken on more and more commissions.
The range of requests is quite diverse including:
- Leaf Letter-openers as corporate gifts;making a garden sculpture out of an historic family treadle sewing machine (portal doorway);
- A quirky fish wall installation made from large brass jardineres that had been in the client’s family for over 50 years;
- Wedding cake knives and cake lifters;
- An installation of Peace Posts;
- Book stack benches and small tables;
- Turning family silver-plate in functional and artistic objects and jewellery;
- Industrial influenced magazine rack;
- Artisan Lamps from family heirlooms;
- Leaf form presentation awards and gifts;
- Industrial influenced shop signage;
- and awards for the Queensland Literary Awards (with Fiona Dempster).
I’m happy to discuss any commissions that reflect my range of art styles.
