Threefold Designs Blogspot
This is my personal Blog, where I like to rant about studying woven tapestry, handweaving, making wool dreads, green beauty, and anything else I feel like talking about
Goth Deathrock Art Project
I have started a (possibly life-long) project of creating artworks about the Goth/Deathrock subculture using the mediums of woven tapestry and needlepoint. This blog is a compilation of images that friends from all over the world have sent me, so I can use them in future artworks.

PEOPLE AND PLACES OF AWESOMENESS:
This blog belongs to my partner Anita, and is about life in our geodesic dome house (well, Geodesic Dome World doesn’t really have the same ring to it ). Anita’s passion is gardening, cooking and living in harmony with the land.
Jeski Art And Design
Talented graphic designer and artisan from Sydney. Jess designed my blog header and background for the Goth Deathrock Art Project blog, as well as Anita’s Yurtgirl World blog banner. Contact her if you’d like your blog, website and/or logo spruced up!
Bowerbird Bazaar, Adelaide
A bazaar for designer makers to sell their art and wares to the public all under
the one roof. A place for shoppers to buy unique design driven products. An
event for networking, socialising and shopping! 3 events in 2012: March, July and October @ Queens Theatre (Playhouse Lane, Adelaide).
Kaffe Fassett was my inspiration to start designing needlepoints – his books gave me my first ‘AHA!’ moment, when I figured out exactly what I wanted to do. He is the master of colour, and keeps evolving as an artist, specialising in painting, knitting, needlepoint, mosaics, patchwork, and whatever else he puts his hand to. A true creative genius!
Mardi is an amazing and inspirational tapestry artist – go and check out her bold, modern work!
Anton is another tapestry artist whom I find inspirational – he pushes the boundaries by creating works that challenge social convention, as well as mixing mediums by creating mosaics out of buttons.
Erin M Riley
Erin is an incredibly cutting-edge tapestry artist. One of her themes is social media, and how young girls post inappropriate pictures of themselves all over the internet without thinking of long-term consequences. Erin has captured some of these ‘quick and dirty’ images into art via the slow and laborious medium of woven tapestry. Please note that some of her work is NSFW
This is a fantastic art/design blog, penned by Jessica Thompson, the designer/maker of the Jessica Louise clothing line … and yes, I own quite of few of her garments, heh heh!
Eat your cake and wear it too! This woman’s amazing – she designs and makes food-themed scarves (such as the bacon and eggs scarf, cupcake scarf, green salad scarf) which are very tongue-in-cheek, colourful and clever! Hmmm, learning how to crochet is definitely on my ‘to do’ list Her book is available on her Etsy store.
Re-Earthing The Cities
Margaret’s website is absolutely fantastic, and proves that one can live a sustainable lifestyle within a city. This website is full of hints and tips of how you can contribute to the environment by using more natural products, changing behaviour, recycling, etc.
These are articles that I have written – and yes, the title of the series (Astrology Without Tears) is a homage to the great Aleister Crowley (who was an excellent Astrologer, amongst other things).
The following article is by my Astrology teacher, Val Juncken, who also teaches self confidence and communication skills. For further information about Val, please go to her MySpace page.
