Pairing Exhibition now available online, visit in person from Tuesday 4th May 2021

My latest Exhibition, Pairings, is now available online.

This Exhibition is about placing work from my archive in dialogue with a series of new additions, following a loose theme, “ Spots.”
Pairings is the inaugural show in the new Annexe Gallery and also the first for the new concept of using a Gallery space.
The artwork will be on display from Tuesday 4th May to Saturday 29th May 2021 in the Annexe Gallery, 611 Wynnum Road, Morningside.
One of the new innovations is to enable a buyer to take the picture home on purchase. (I would be happy to end the month with blank walls)!

Online exhibition now open, prints available!

Mosaic Iconlady, Teacup, 58×77 cm. $820

CORONAVIRUS!!!!
The unfortunate pandemic in our country means the Exhibition planned for the Richard Randall Gallery, Toowong, has been closed down. HOW EVER—–
The One Third of the show that I prepared is presented here.

All works available for purchase, unframed. Framing can be arranged in Brisbane. All the paintings are on heavy white rag paper, watercolour, and measure 58 x 77 cm.  (Dancer – small 58 x 10cm, and Full Moon is acrylic paint.)

For only $ 85.00 each, I have one print of each picture for sale . All prints on quality photographic paper.  Go to the Shop and be the first to purchase a print!

Tea cosy by Helen McIntosh

I was fascinated by the knitted tea cosies I found in second-hand shops because they’re diverse, original, made by people being creative who aren’t worried about status or artistic value. They are genuine hand-craft.

I have created cloth dolls instead of plastic or Barbie dolls etc, and use my own ideas for tea cosies. Being me, I can’t help going “over the top” where “more” is better, and better still 🙂

I see them as a celebration of women and craft, and who doesn’t love a cup of tea?
