Studio visit with Takie and her upcoming solo exhibtion 'It's All Yours'
I recently met Takie at a Soul of Sydney Block Party in the Library Hotel, Chippendale where she and a several other artists including Baf Cat, The Dirt and Sid Tapia were doing live painting. I love her style so when she kindly invited me to check out her studio it was an offer I couldn’t refuse. Walking into Takie’s studio felt like I had just walked in on an exploding rainbow.

Spotlight on an Inner West business: Sydney Photographic Workshops
There are so many fantastic businesses in the Inner West, many of which I am only just discovering. I thought it would be a great idea to introduce a series on blogs highlighting the creative business men and women of the Inner West in all sorts of fields. What better way to kick off this new idea than focussing on a passion of mine… photography. A couple of weeks ago I was photographing street...

Interview with Street Artist: Skulk
I have long been a fan of the work of street artist Skulk and it’s always a pleasure finding his charaters around the Inner West. Most will recognise his current work next to the Crumpler store (photo above – middle) which is part of a constantly changing street art exhibition for all the pedestrians on King Street. Other all time favourites of mine include a collaborative wall at the...

The Inner West is a hub for great food and design. New places are constantly opening and the two newbies on the block are Koskela & Kitchen By Mike! Koskela is an insanely cool design and furniture store, which was originally located in Surry Hills and has now moved to Rosebery and shares a warehouse space with Kitchen By Mike. Food and design under the one roof, as far as I’m concerned... 

Interview: Street Artist Liza

Interview: Street Artist Liza
I’ve been a fan of the work of street artist Liza for ages. The very first Liza design that caught my attention was the woman above with the scary crutch, and I have since delighted in finding his hand drawn faces and collage creations scattered throughout the Inner West. I regularly post photos of street art on the “I Love The Inner West” facebook page and it was through facebook...
