About

A Painter who knits.

I am primarily a landscape painter and trained in Melbourne, Australia and New York City. I now reside in the Tokyo area of Japan. I paint in both oil and Japanese watercolour and make monotypes using Japanese paper (washi). I paint in the studio and sketch on location. I also work from memory to make bird's eye view abstractions of places I have been.

I collect, repair and use vintage Japanese knitting machine to make one-off accessories from high quality luxury yarns. I love colour. Be quick! I can't often do remakes due to small yarn quantities.

Regards,
AK

Care instructions

Frame works on paper with acid free mounts and behind perspex or glass.

All knits are best cared for by hand washing in a mild soap or wool wash. If you can't find a good wool wash, you can use shampoo and conditioner. Water should be lukewarm - 30C is good. Do not scrub or wring. Roll in a towel to reshape and dry flat.

Custom and personalised orders

Yes. Payment 50/50.
