This month I have a four page article on my work in the Journal of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators.
I am beyond excited, and invite you to join with me, and come to a studio art class - just like pre-covid!
I am very proud of being trained at the Smithsonian, and totally appreciated the life-affirming opportunity
I was given. I would like to repeat it - but you can't go back. Most of the people I worked with were older
when I was there, and have passed on long since. I soaked up what they could teach and have used the
knowledge every day since.
In 1983 I lost all my research, all my artwork, all my pages from that time.
This month a whole manila folder of drawings from that time reappeared like magic.
I took it as a sign, and will use it to spring onto my painting life once again.
NEW - SATURDAY BOTANICAL ART CLASS: "GIVE IT A GO" with Jahne. 4 x 2 hour classes
from Saturday 9th October, 2.30pm to 4.30 $75 for members of The Botanical Art Society of Australia,
($85 non-members). Location: Woodend, Victoria.
To Book: Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our classes take you from the beginning _ I teach as I was taught. You will learn how to properly use and respect
your pencils, pens and ink. I presume nothing, therefore we all start at the beginning, and learn to
draw from the beginning. Once you can see, you can draw.
If this is how you want to learn, then contact me.
Email and we will set up your class attendance - or just have a chat.
COMMISSIONS GRATEFULLY ACCEPTED. Please email me to discuss details. email@example.com
WHAT ARE "STICK AND POKE" TATTOOS (HAND POKED TATTOOS)?
Hand-Poked are pretty much exactly what the name would have you think. 'Hand-Poke' is tattooing
without electricity. It’s the original way they tattooed back in the day.
WE ARE BACK - but there are new rules. We cannot give you snacks or drinks, and you must inform us of your health condition. Please bring anything you might need. A couple of hand towels to protect the table, cling film, and we wear masks. If you need a pillow or a blanket, please bring those too. EVERYONE MUST BE DOUBLE VACC'D and have their certificate. Q-Codes if necessary.
Our high sanitary standard is not new to us (and we have Health Registration HLTH2016),
which is why we can come back with no fear.
WE MISSED YOU SO MUCH.
APPOINTMENTS STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT - Email me at YOGAFIRST@NETCON.NET.AU
Tattoo Size - about the size of a 50cent piece, Black or henna colour, from $65 depending on design.
