My digital artwork has been used by new on-line business Gertrude and Smith.
I am so happy to have a Giclee Print image on new on-line luxury gift parcel business Gertrude + Smith.
Being selected was not a given, even though it is my Son’s new business. He is working hard to launch around June this year. It’s a hard life as he has me sampling chocolates, cocktails, candles etc. Such a hard life. Please look him up, subscribe to his website and follow him on his instagram as listed below. He will be doing competitions and offering his beautiful gift parcels to a follower soon. Everything is Premium, I have never heard that word used so much in my life. Premium.
The artwork he has printed on a card is called ‘I’m in Smith Street’.
Candle holders from garage sale
Found these at a garage sale. Loved them from a distance. Wasn’t sure what I would have paid for them but $2.50each was terrific. Lucky me. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs2aBpdFKpW/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=ie6ye4vtolu1
Alphington Open Studios is this weekend 24th and 25th November 11-6.
It’s not a big area around Alphington with only 13 (diverse) artists participating. See Alphington Studios facebook site and or Alphington Studios Website where you will find lots more information about all the artists. More pictures from me on Instagram: annewarrenart. The beautiful fine tapestry work is by one of this year’s guest artists Joy Smith.
If you do make it to Alphington please say hello.
Building Heads now Giclee edition.
This was a result of a late night fiddle with scissors, books and blue tack. I made several images with these heads, especially the large one on the left. On instagram (annewarrenart) I was asked by a follower for a Giclee print of the image so I made one and the rest is history. Now these are very small prints on Arches Watercolour paper 300gsm in sepia. Only 10 in the edition. I will have them available at the November open studios event. Let me know if you would like more information.
You can see all 5 (I think) in black and white on instagram.
Hope you like them.
Peachy, orangy colours but it’s a persimmon.
A small painting on board done using acrylics. The fruit is off my tree that refuses to grow taller. Many years ago I took a photo of myself in front of the newly planted tree hoping it would get taller but alas it is still the same size. I get only about six pieces of fruit from it. The best thing is it is a pretty tree and the fruit is delicious.
Surreal 3D collage assemblage.
The newest series of works I have been making are assemblages or collages of found images of things that I love. The selected images merge with other things that I love which then become brand new surreal works in a new context. This is a work in progress, almost finished. I hope you can see the love and or tenderness between the two people as that is what made me want to put them both on a pedestal with an ecclesiastical framing behind them. The horse, bones and wood are references to their past and a link with the earth.
Books, books everywhere with pages flying through the air, turned upside down and inside out for a series of collages.
I thought I had so very many books for collage that I had been giving them away. I am now out buying up at op shops. I get some strange looks from the people serving me as the selected books are so diverse. My last big buy included: The National Estate, Australia’s Heritage, Album of a Nation, Australian Endangered Species, Florida, The Stockman, Black is Beautiful, One living as one and loving it, Orchids of Africa, Our Royal Family and lots more. The image is important but almost as much is the quality of the paper that supports it.
From time to time I will post some of my work in progress. Some of these make the cut and others do not. These are details only.
I don’t remember all of the books in my collection for collage but last night I remembered a wonderful book about West Australian Wildflowers and of course I couldn’t find it for hours. Books went flying when I was searching. You know what it’s like I’m sure. I remembered the spine, I always remember the spine (not always an accurate memory) was dirty grey and broken still didn’t help me find it any sooner. Found it. Next time my studio is covered in paper I will post a pic and you will see what a mess I am working in.
I want you to know that I always look up the books to make sure they are not rare or unique in some way because of course I would not cut them if that was the case. Often books are kept on a shelf and not appreciated or loved by anyone and then a collage artist (maybe me) will come along and pull it apart to make a unique artwork that can be looked at and appreciated.

Best ever store display at Myer Melbourne.
It’s an old picture I took a number of years ago and as I just came across it I thought I would share with you. This wonderful, crazy, display, was in the Bed Linen section of Myer Melbourne. It looks like someone was finally given freedom to do as they wished instead of standard, boring planogram displays. Should be more of these.
