I'm clearing out my studio to make room for new ideas, creative dreams and plans.

It's been about 2 years now that I've been exhibiting and selling my work, and in that time I've sent many, many paintings off to new homes.  It's extraordinary to me at times that this has happened, and all because I took small brave steps to doing something that I always wanted to do.

There's a small group of works that span across these past two years that are still with me and I'm really keen to see them off to new homes and create the physical and emotional space needed for new ideas and work to be brought to life.

This is your opportunity to get an original {tinniegirl} painting at a price you can afford.

About Paying What You Can
If you're anything like me you love the idea of the pay-what-you-can concept.  Usually for me though I feel really unsure about the whole thing.  I'm embarrassed about not offering enough, or insulting the person, or not showing them that I truly value their work, etc, etc, etc.  Often as a result I end up just not participating.

To give you an idea I would love to sell these paintings for anywhere between $40 and $150.  I am totally happy with that price range, and what actually matters to me most is that these works of mine are able to make their way into the world.  And even more, that they go to people that really connect with them.  I'm also OK with making a payment plan if you need to pay off a piece over a couple of weeks or so.

How It Will Work
At 8pm on Monday night Australian Eastern Standard Time I'll be putting up an album of the works on my Facebook art page* You'll have to pop on over and like the page so that you can see the album when it goes live.  If you'd like to purchase one of the works all you need to do is leave a comment on the photo saying SOLD.  The first person to leave the comment is the one who gets the artwork.  Once you've done that email me at tinniegirl/at/ and tell me the price that you will pay for the artwork.  Yes, that's right, the price will be just between you and I, rather than a public piece of information.

Whatever price you pay for the work this does not include the cost of delivery.  I am happy to arrange collection of any pieces from my home and am also happy to arrange postage at your expense.

Any questions, please give me a holler.  Otherwise I'll see you on Facebook at 8pm on Monday night.  Again, please don't be shy if you would like to buy one of the pieces.  This is a gift for both me and you.  Anyone who's a creative soul knows that you need to create space for new things to be born.

If you would like to have a sneak peak at the catalogue of work for sale you can pop over here to view all the pieces.

*If you are absolutely, totally not a Facebook person and there's a work that is calling to you then please email me directly.  However, please know that it is definitely first come first served as they say.

Have a lovely weekend peeps.


I'm off to The Square market in Bendigo tomorrow if you're in that neck of the woods. The market is on from 10am - 4pm at the town hall.  I'll be having a bit of a sale there too.
