Tropical Paradise

Nate and I had the pleasure of creating this tropical paradise from scratch recently for photographer Gary Sheppard. We used a range of established palms, scrubs, hanging plants, tropical flowers and vines. Artificial pants and flowers were added to include species that were out of season and avoid wilting in the heat. I am thinking I might change career when I am around fifty and become a floral designer.

Good Weekend Resort

Last month Good Weekend magazine ran this spread for their summer special edition in the SMH and The Age. I art directed and styled the story, shot by Damain Bennett at Pretty Beach House, Killcare.

This tropical story featured a capsule holiday wardrobe comprised of soft fluid dress and quirky swimwear. Some highlights include a Mrs Press hand painted jumpsuit and a silk Paradise kimono by Carl Kapp. Delicate fabrics, luscious colours and unique prints feature throughout this dreamy effervescent shoot.
