Phillipa Cowdrey

The phenomenally talented Philippa Cowdrey has been up to more creative high-jinks since we caught up with her in Issue 2 of Extra Curricular. Printing totes, doing more of her beautifully detailed illustrations and making awesome new hand-tooled and painted leather rose brooches. We can only hope she gets along to a market or two one of these days...

Heike Theis - a.k.a Minu, a talented artist who I am sure you have all heard of - has delightful digital prints available for sale on Felt. These are two of the original paintings - part of her 'Awoke' series. They make me think of dreams...
Minu will be at the New Zealand Art Show from the 29th July to the 1st of August at the TSB Bank Arena in Wellington.
