a few of my talented friends (part 1)!

by Chantal

Okay so Dean Melbourne tends to get a fair bit of press on here because we work together a lot – and it is true that you should check out his fab latest painting Langourla (the promise) on his website – but I do have some other very talented friends that I thought I should share with you.

So today’s offering (in no particular order. . . ) are:

Photography by Angela Ward-Brown

Photography by Angela Ward-Brown

Ange Ward-Brown – photographer extraordinaire! Her pics are the type guaranteed to make you go “ooohh” or “damnit I wish I could make it look like that!” Speciality has got to be portraits, they are just sublime. She has a website offering her services for portraiture and wedding photography and you can also see her work on her Flickr photostream.


Leaned Pig. limited edition screenprint by Sharon Whyte


Sharon Whyte a recent friend acquisition – painter, screen-printer, and archive delver. You have to love her recent series of screen prints entitled A Sage of the Stage, not a Beast in a Cage. These prints are a result of her research into “learned animals” that performed theatrically from the sixteenth century onwards. Her prints celebrate this period of theatrical history making use of surviving playbills, posters etc. You can follow Sharon’s progress in her blog The Sapient Pig.




Your final treat for the day is . . . DJ Chix – he makes me cool by association. Part of the fabulous Jellybass(check out their facebook page to listen to tracks and see the tour video), he has toured with MC Abdominal and spent this Saturday warming up for the super furries at Blissfields. A man heading on his way to musical greatness – watch this space!

Another delicious smorgasboard of delights will be coming up in part 2 of my talented friends.
