Stall Feature of the Month

We had a chinwag with Alana Bosgra, the 22-year- old behind Lani’s Art. Lani has a philosophy for her art, and for life in general. She sums it up in three points: no mistake is ever too final, to be honest with herself always, and having a sense of humour is important. Can you tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do? I use art to decipher my internal world of thoughts and feelings. I describe my art, which is usually colourful pen and pencil work, as leaning towards a kind of whimsical surrealism. People often tell me that my art reminds them of Alice in Wonderland or Mambo. Why do you do what you do? Firstly, because it’s my outlet, I have to get my thoughts out, otherwise quirky ideas would bounce around my brain forever. My main interest lies in the link between art and mental health and how helpful it is to express through artwork. I am about to finish a social science degree with plans to continue on to art therapy. I’ve previously travelled Australia sharing my art in schools in every state, and speaking about art and mental health. Linking these two areas is something I am so passionate about. Who are some other artists, crafters, creatives that you love? And why? Let’s take it all the way back to the 1500’s… Hieronymous Bosch is a massive hero of mine! He was ahead his time, creating these super weird creatures and amazingly surreal paintings. This was way before my other hero of the surreal art world, Salvador Dali! Also, Van Gogh really inspires me. Not just his art, but his letters. He had this really honest, soft soul... read more

Stall Feature of the Month!

We had a chat with the lovely Emily of emma&lee about her love for travel and being creative, as well as her passion for sourcing and making products that are ethical, beautiful and unique. Can you tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do? I am a 25-year- old graduate architect. I am pretty much surrounded by creative people and projects all day, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. When I’m not at Suitcase Rummage on a weekend for emma&lee, I’m working on some other DIY project of mine. Why do you do what you do? emma&lee is my side project, and was always something I had wanted to do, yet it only really began while I was travelling through Asia & Eastern Europe, and with the strong encouragement from my boyfriend. I had become so disheartened by ‘shopping’ back home because I didn’t know where a particular piece was coming from, who made it, or what impact I was creating by purchasing it. I wanted to start a small business, focusing on unique and handmade items; the type that I would want to buy and cherish myself! While travelling, I started collecting beautiful and unique pieces from the places we went. After meeting the artisans or families who made these items and gaining a little insight into the process behind them, I became particularly interested in finding items that showcased the styles and techniques of that part of the world. After returning home, Suitcase Rummage became the best platform to sell these collections, as well as things I had made. I think this form of direct trade has a really positive role to play in the future,... read more

Stall Feature of the Month!

*All dogs (and people) allowed to read this stall feature! INTRODUCING…. STITCHYWOOD! Elizabeth McAlister, of Stitchywood, knows that using your dog’s name as your business’ namesake is bound to get you best in show! Can you tell us a little bit about what you do?  I do a few things with Stitchywood. The main thing I do is digitise my original artworks, get them printed on fabric and then create a range of handmade items. I sew everything myself! At the moment a lot of my fabrics are from spray paint stencil artworks I’ve done (mainly of dogs) but I’ve got more stuff coming out in the second half of the year that is seeing me move in a new direction using different mediums for my art, including photography. Why do you do what you do? It’s pretty cliché but – I just love creating (I’m also a filmmaker under the guise ‘Stitchywood Films’)! Constantly having projects to work on keeps me happy and out of trouble! At the end of the day, I also get a kick out of creating something people love as well. Who are some other artists, crafters, creatives that you love? And why? I’ve been so inspired by the works of a group of Californian ladies who I discovered on Instagram a couple of years ago: Kindah Khalidy, Napkin Apocalypse, & Lorien Stern. They’ve taught me that art is whatever you want it to be. Also, Robbie Erskine, is a sensational, local, fine artist. I could only dream of being as talented as she is! What excites you? Life? I’m a pretty novice but pretty keen surfer. Though, living in Brisbane, the coast trips... read more
