It's not often that one gets to have their artwork auctioned off to support one of the top teams in a national league. I feel so honored to be given the opportunity to be able to donate for auction a selection of my drippy animal works to the Brydens Sydney Uni Flames.

The Brydens Sydney Uni Flames are the only Women's National Basketball League team in New South Wales, and they are currently sitting top the ladder with just one round to go before finals. My pieces will feature in the auction which is part of their presentation night being held on the 15th of February.

Should the Brydens Sydney Uni Flames make the grand final, I will get my nails painted in club colours with a little flame and a basketball.
Packing cards for gift bags for the Travel Massive Melbourne event Ladies That Travel
The Travel Massive Melbourne event Ladies That Travel has been rescheduled to the 15 November. The event will feature some lovely speakers who will be talking about what it is like to be an adventure traveling lady. Highlighting that travelling and being a woman isn't all about big hats, pink floral shirts, and tiny skirts - it's all about the thrills, spills, coffee, and champagne chills.

The event is open to all people and those that attend as a valuable Travel Massive Melbourne guest will receive a VIP goodies bag. Each bag will contain one of my cards featuring either my deer or weedy sea dragon drip watercolour works, and you'll also have the chance to win one of my original artworks.

I'm proud to have stenciled four reclaimed surfboard fins that are currently being auctioned off to support sit-skier Mark Soyer represent Australia this winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

After a surfing incident in 2014 that caused damage to my surfboard and the fins, I painted the damaged fins and auctioned them off raising funds to pay for the repairs, with additional funds going towards to Fin Free Melbourne. Since then, Scott Peberdy at Outereef Surfboards in San Remo has been collecting used fins for me to paint.

My latest series of painted surfboard fins, featuring a sea turtle, tiger shark, orca, and a dolphin, are being auctioned off to support sit-skiier Mark Soyer represent Australia this winter in the Northern Hemisphere.


Mark was an avid skier prior to a motorbike accident in 2004, he is still far better than most able-bodied skiers. A competitive athlete before his accident, he quickly mastered the art of sit-skiing, or mono-skiing, during his rehabilitation. He found that when you're skiing it doesn't make a difference if you have a disability or not, the rush is still the same. Since the very first day of being in a sit ski he has gone from strength to strength with being awarded the Steven J. Ricci Award at Winter Park for exemplify team leadership and sportsmanship, hiking and skiing the Highlands Bowl in Aspen, and racing at the 2015 IPC Alpine Skiing World Championships in Panorama, Canada, are just some of his many achievements. Mark’s passion for the outdoors doesn’t just stop with his own personal achievements, eager to give others that taste of physical freedom, Mark is a volunteer with Disabled WinterSport Australia, assisting people with various physical or mental disabilities learn how to find their own freedom on the snow.

Mark has recently flown over to the US, where he will be based in Colorado as he trains and competes. It is expected that he will be there for 3 months representing Australia in Slalom, GS, Super G, Downhill and Super-Combined with races in Colorado and Utah. The most important race for him being the World Cup Finals in late February, early March in Aspen.

All profits from the sale of the surfboard fins will be donated towards Mark’s time in the US as he represents Australia. If you're interested on placing a bid on the fins you’ve until the 7th of December, to bid visit my eBay account.
I'm very excited to announce that I've re-joined the team at CURVY as editor. This is partly due to my decision to separate my blogging from my art. I wanted a space where I could write about the things that inspire me, and where better than where the moto is to 'creatively inspire creative women'. If you're interested to read some of my latest posts on the CURVY website check out my profile.
I've headed along to a few Drawing Book Academy events as someone interested in hearing other creative people talk about their experiences. I found them to be very insightful, even as someone with a few years under my belt. I believe that you never stop learning.

This time around it's going to be a little different, well, for me anyways. I'll be standing up and talking about my experiences in relation to the theme "life is a pitch".  Alongside me will be another Nicole, Nicole Honig.

I hope to see you there and if so make sure you come say 'hi'!

Nicole Tattersall Powerhouse Geelong

Yesterday, on my way down to Torquay to check out the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach, go for a surf, and catch up with a good friend, I stopped by the Powerhouse in Geelong. I was prepared to paint, though not in my usual style or with my usual techniques. It was about seeing what was I'm capable of with just a few cans of spraypaint and not much else.

I could go on to say what I think of it, but I weren't, and I could ask for what you think, but I weren't. What I will say is that it was nice to push myself to do something different, even though the style is a old style, it's a way of painting I've only done every now and then and I'm certainly keen to do more, and see what's possible.
