Home Studio

Well my big glam studio in the city lasted two years, but as my eldest moved out I had the perfect excuse and a compact but newly painted room to move in back home. The great thing- fresh air from balcony doors- not an option in the city with all the bus fumes and road noise and of course saving some money which never hurts.
I'm just as messy as ever but it takes less time to clean up!

Trixie History

PLAGIARISM is rife in the craft scene and I was even accused of it myself recently by a local imitator who started after me and has been operating a mere 2 years.
My work in ceramics however predates the internet by a decade as this image shows.
Trixie Delicious is an internet brand I established in 2006 to keep my online persona and private life separate. The inspiration for my work goes back to my time at Elam 1982-87 where I completed a BFA in Sculpture with honours.
I sold reworked ceramics under my name Karen Dennis from 1990- the freedom plate above-at WORLD in high st when it was just one little store. They now stock my trixiedelicious brand.
I also sold my ceramics through The Fish Shop Gallery (Ponsonby) in the early 90s where I had two solo exhibitions.
While we all enjoy the internet it is wise to remember it has a very short history unlike people and their ongoing art processes- mine spanning almost 3 decades.
