The more time I spend here in LA; seeing, absorbing, learning, thinking & meeting new people, the pieces of my own personal puzzle seem to be slowly falling into a much more cohesive pile ready and waiting to be sorted into an ordered picture that makes sense and feels right.
I managed to catch the incredibly talented Perth/Sydney based artist Jodee Knowles on her last day in LA and had a great time over tea chatting about what she’s been up to and what she’s doing next. I’ve been following her work for a while now and lamenting over the pieces I love that always seem to sell as soon as they hit the gallery wall. So I was ecstatic when I found out of of my fave pieces was in fact still available and is now mine!!! ‘Attributes’ from her Sadder than Cemeteries collection is my absolute favourite piece. I guess as a makeup artist, it’s a fashion and beauty image to me and on top of that, the intensity in the eyes is startling.
I’m going to be following her work and hopefully acquiring more amazing pieces over time. Creativity is so exciting and inspiring to be around and I think whether it’s art, makeup, fashion or writing; the passion, dedication and talent, I think is what makes it so fascinating!
