I call this new work, but the truth is, some of it has been a year in the making. Paintings, ideas, scribbles, all sitting quietly waiting for the time to be something. It's been a very therapeutic experience working on these. These new designs are all large limited editions, and should be in the shop within the week. We're just finalising some last minute teensy details.

We're back! It's been an odd three months... where does time go? Most of it was spent playing doctors and hospitals, and tests. Being poked, scanned, tested, and poked some more. The good news is, it's nearly over, and hopefully, we are at the end of this. Other good news is that while we did not have much time for art work, or inaluxe, there has been some recent movement with new work, and here is one of those designs now. Titled "Embrace I" it's a limited edition of 200 - archival giclee. Coming to the shop soon. Size is A2. The watermark/logo doesn't actually appear on the print.

Due to personal reasons that have nothing to do with inaluxe, we will be taking our break earlier than usual, and we might be away for slightly longer than usual. In order to get some balance back into life, we will be closing our store on Friday the 4th of April, and returning sometime in May. At this stage, we are not sure exactly when in May, but we will yell out when we're back on board. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but you gotta do what you gotta do, and life is so big and full on, sometimes extraordinary things happen. If you are after inaluxe goodies, please see our stockist page... they are available worldwide! We hope this finds you all well, and happy. See you all soon. Thank you for your support, it means the world to us.

Wow... inaluxe designs on cushions is something we have been wanting to do for a long time, but we've been pretty busy over the last three years, and well, we never got around to it. So you can imagine how excited we are to actually see our art on the latest cushions by Urban Outfitters! We believe these are in limited release, so at $39.00USD a pop, you might wanna get in before they all sell out. I might also mention it's FREE shipping from Urban Outfitters to Australia on all orders over fifty bucks. That's pretty NEAT!

While the builders were busy pulling our place apart in November, we were busy painting and working on the new designs for Earth Greetings. It was pretty chaotic around here, not that you'd know looking at the range that came out of it all. We think these are playful, bright, serene, and they make us happy. We hope you enjoy them too. Again, I can't express enough how much we love working with Earth Greetings. They are fabulous, and we are thrilled to be part of their range. There are 12 new designs in total. To see them all, or purchase (with worldwide shipping) simply visit the Earth Greetings website.

Christmas means so many things. For us, it is about spending time with the people we love. It's a universal feeling, and one we all relate to. For me, it's also a time of new life, promise, and hope so you can imagine how excited we both are to be part of the Bondville 10 Year Anniversary Charity Auction. All proceeds go to the Children's Cancer Institute Australia, and there are only three days left before the auction ends. We donated three LARGE prints for the auction. YAY! ACES! and then some. We would be grateful if you could share this event, given only three days left. Cancer is never a nice thing, so anything we can do to improve the quality of life, and treatment for children with cancer will make this Christmas a little more joyous. And hey, there are so many amazing things on auction to bid on, and so many wonderful artists and designers who have donated. It makes me feel good in so many ways!

We've been a little quiet over the last few weeks as we have builders working on our house/studio which while very exciting, it's also a little hard to keep working when your roof is coming off, or the jackhammer is in full swing. Still, it is business as usual, just a little less blogging! However, we can't keep away completely, so here is a little bit of fun news on a recent feature.
During the last few weeks, as well as business as usual, Jason and I had the pleasure of working on an inaluxe feature for The Red Thread - Space To Create. We were so chuffed when we got an email from Lisa Tilse asking if we would be keen, and I have to tell you, it was so much fun! We talk about our home, work, and art. We hope you'll drop by and check out Lisa's amazing blog, and while you're there, have a look at her beautiful work.

A little bit of news to share with you all.... If you're in New South Wales, you can now buy select framed inaluxe prints at Life Interiors. We love this photo of our prints framed in their Waterloo showroom. Nice! Hope you're all having a great week.

We have some news! we worked on a limited edition design for Masion Alice based on our shipping news range, and it's out now. Nice and big, the size is A1, 594mm x 841mm, and each one is signed, and numbered by me. Now available through Maison Alice. Here are a few photos. The first photo shows our design The Marina design alongside Paul Thurlby's Boats design.

Our garden is bustling with energy and colour. I planted some tulips this year. They are such a joy to watch. They grow and change during the day, with their colour intensifying almost before your eyes. I forgot that they open up to the sun, and close in the evening. Something else, quite magical!

It's fair to say we don't have many photos of ourselves on the net. There are some people who are in front of the camera all the time, and I wish I could do that, but the truth is, I hate having my photo taken. Jason's not quite as bad as I am, actually I think he's one of those people who loves it! We are such opposites in so many ways. It's that difference that makes for a very entertaining working relationship. And just to show we really are real people, here is a little collage of some recent photos we took, of our work, a little part of our home, and lastly, us.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend, and thank you all for your patience with regard to our absence over the last week. We are slowly getting back on track, and now back home following my grandmother's funeral. It was an incredibly sad, but beautiful day. See you all in a week or so....

We like to collect things, and perhaps the most loved collections we have are the living kind. Here is a cutting I took from one of my grandmother's Geraniums. It's in the garden now, and doing well. I just love that neon pink, and I love that it reminds me of her.
05 September 2013
It has been a reflective week, filled with sadness, and fond memories. This one is for my grandmother baka Mara, who passed away peacefully aged 86, on Tuesday morning. It's a bit of a tough time around here, so Jason and I will be keeping things low-key for the next week or so... but we shall see you all soon. x Kristina

The thing I love about photography (and I've probably said this before) is its ability to capture a moment in time, unlike anything else. I'm constantly inspired by what I see. However, I can't, and certainly don't attempt to re-create that moment in a design. It's impossible to portray it in its entirety. The best I can do is try and convey the feeling within that moment, and I guess you could say that's what a lot of my work is about. I won't speak for Jason in great detail, but I know he is of a similar mindset on this. Here are two photos from our backyard. The last one is the view from our deck. We have two old buildings, one which needs to come down soon (originally a work shed) and what used to be the kitchen, which will be renovated. Both date back to 1903. That might not seen like old to many of you, but Australia is a relatively young country, and that is old here. And last but not least, I find myself wondering about those silos in the distance. I am not entirely sure if they are still in use. Some days I love their imposing presence, other days they annoy me, for blocking the view of the mountains. I'm hard to please.
