Things have been pretty busy this month.
Pottery is going great guns and I have a few
pieces ready to go in the kiln this week.
Looking foward to glazing them. Here is a
peek at another of my clay works to be added
to a mixed medium work that is slowly progressing...

The commission piece for the school library is completed. Look out next week for photos.

Cards are printed and ready for sale.Only $7.50 for a pack of 3 (includes free postage in Australia. I accept Paypal or direct debit to bank account. Contact me : for orders or more info)

More work on the go including pieces for upcoming art shows. Plenty of work to keep me out of mischief.

Melbourne Street Art

I love Melbourne. The street art is just one of the many things that make it the fantastic place it is. I hope you enjoyed these samples from the CBD laneways and Brunswick.

More Babushkas

© Kelly Gatchell Hartley 2011
Yes I love doing Babushka inspired illustrations. I am currently working on a commission for a childrens library, and this work is from one of the sketches I put foward. It wasn't the image chosen but I loved it so much I did it anyway.
Keep an eye out for the actual commission painting... will pop it up once I have handed it over.
