XVI: The Women

For the women who have changed the world and given us some of the richest fruits of knowledge -

Having spent a lifetime growing to love the works of several female poets and artists; I've taken this chance to dedicate certain pieces in my new collection, Handmade V, to the magnificent and inspirational figures such as the ones below.

"Art is an attempt to integrate evil."
-Simone de Beauvoir

"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind; is written large in his works." 
-Virginia Woolf

"That it will never come again, is what makes life so sweet."
-Emily Dickinson

XIV: To Make Up for Lost Time (Part I)

I am well aware of my shabbiness when it comes to all this 'communication through technology.' So here are some images from/about the past months, that reflect on my endeavors during the period. I'll probably keep doing this, since it is rather nicely succinct and quite self-explanatory: Enjoy!

Other small updates:

- I will shortly post some coverage and work that I was involved in for the Auckland issue of I Heart Magazine. 

  This should include editorial images and the amazingly talented team I worked with.

- Images from the soon-to-be-shot look book for my next collection, HANDMADE V;
  along with fragments of literature that it was inspired by.

- A new multimedia project, combining poetry with knitting, crochet and embroidery.

- New puppies I have been introduced to (actually so far, just one)

- General university life -Ohh bliss

Hope everybody has been having a marvelous year, so far
-Here's to amazing things that should keep us warm this coming winter!
