Beau Est Mien!

I'm going to bring you occasional posts about some of my creative friends & introduce you to some of the amazing skills they have.
I'll start today with Magali Dincher, who you've heard me talk about before as we had a joint exhibition last month.
Magali is a printmaker & by that, I don't mean she uses her inkjet printer! She works in a variety of traditional printmaking techniques using a true printing press. These include collagraph, etching, linocut etc , and each brings a different quality to her unique and delightful visual style.
We became close friends when she also had a studio space where I work in Fremantle and we just clicked. We share similar tastes in design as well as enjoying a frequent chat and long macchiato!
She is from N.E. France and somehow this shows in her work, even that based on local WA themes - they have an air of light-heartedness and joie de vivre that can't fail to put a smile on your face. Her business name Beau est Mien says it all!
You will find Magali on the stall next to mine at the next Perth Upmarket, this Sunday 26th June at UWA.
