ANGELfor Nana
Every Christmas I give my Nana a decoration
as a kid I'd make them 
then I got old and bought most of them...
this year I've made Nana an Angel...

Each Angel has a Geisha Girl / Cuppee Doll / Betty Boo inspired face 
hand painted in acrylic paints and resins by Sam Maher

Made from abandoned dolly pegs, lace, thread and fabric scraps, hand sewn

Perfect for pegging straight on top of the Christmas tree, a branch or tinsel

WYNLEN HOUSE Interactive Rack Card
The gorgeous Bronwyn and Helen of Wynlen House Slow Food Farm and Learning Centre were invited by the Italian Slow Food Movement to their Conference in Turin in September 2016. They needed something fun and interactive, light and portable and easy to update in both omnichannel presentations and transmedia outputs, with a seamless optimised backend and a gorgeous digital interface. We wanted interaction data too, across numerous events, that could be validated within the integration by pulling data metrics across a suite of analytics tools. It also needed to look good in its print form, load digital content quickly and efficiently and have a easy-use interface to optimise experience for users with multiple digital literacy. The opportunity to test one of our new prototypes in an international and domestic territory was too good to pass up, so here is a new use of a developing interactive print/digital portal. This one is powered by Layar. Scan the front and back panels with your device and watch a video or press the buttons. Feedback is always wanted. Likewise we're always looking for Guinea Pigs wanting to do something new with brand narratives.

LOVE at Altenburg
My aim for this group show was to engage with my potential new audience, get some feedback at targeted events, and to test technology requirements and feasibility of interactive entertainment and illustration reaching mass adoption in locations compromised by poor connectivity.
