My exciting foray into GOCCO printing! YIPPEE. This was the test run, the original (above) in black ink on white and the multicolour print result on the right. The machine was given to me but all the supplies came from Nehoc Australia Pty Ltd.http://www.nehoc.com.au/index.html

As part of the Perth AWESOME Kids Art Festival, donated pianos were decorated by schools and community groups working with an artist. i was thrilled to work with the talented Year 4/5 class at Byford Primary. we paper mached the piano with torn photocopy paper then used buttons to create stars and words of encouragement. the public were enticed to play the pianos as they were dotted around the city.
