Victorian Art Centre Market

Every Sunday, 9.30am – 4.30pm, local artisans fill Arts Centre Melbourne’s Lawn to showcase their unique,
handmade goods ranging from arts and crafts to freshly made deliccies.

Everything on offer is produced locally, making the market a real favourite for those seeking one-of-a-kind treasures for them selves or as gifts.

Just a short walk over the bridge from Flinders Street Station, our Sunday Market is a much-loved weekly event, with the relaxed feel of a regional craft market set against the backdrop of Melbourne’s buzzing arts precinct.

Please note that all stallholders at our Sunday Market rotate positions regularly. If you’re looking for your favourites, please be sure to have a wander along St Kilda Rd and behind along the lawn until you can find what you’re looking for!

This weekend Soul Stories will be down the front in the middle, wooohoooo
~ hope to see you there with a big smile on ya dial… Much love, t x

 

Naked Truth

I was asked tonight:

Why do you post naked pictures of yourself????

My reply without batting an eyelid ~
It’s Art, it’s line, it’s love, it’s life, it’s being vulnerable in every way, it pushing boundaries, it’s beauty, it’s strength, it’s surviving eating disorders, its a dancer aware of her body, its a tool, it’s inspiration, it’s bravery, it’s being uncomfortable, it’s growth, it’s depth, it’s emotion & it’s no big deal in the bigger picture of life…

Yes, in some eyes, it’s an ass, it’s provocative, it’s sexual, its attention seeking, it’s a disgrace…

But look a little closer ~ I’m so much more than the surface of my skin, so many stories deep within… We all are, made up of so many wonders that we may be afraid to show without judgement, without care ~ wearing everything, wearing nothing…

Life is too short – so run & create as much beauty as you can in the world. Lift other souls up, inspire them, give and take and then give some more…
It’s so cliche, but no regrets – keep your heart open, connecting with others and sharing your stories along the way…

Otherwise who gives a fuc in this crazy beautiful one shot life?

Much love always, Xt

(this photo shows a naked body – yet it represents my husband unexpectedly walking out, then learning of your mum being diagnosed with cancer for the second time, in between contracts with no work, trying to support yourself with an apartment you can barely afford on your own, whilst worried that you may be deported as your living in a foreign country under a spousal visa…
I only see emotion ~ a soul, broken, beautiful, raw, standing in pool of water representing her tears of despair… )
