thedesignfiles After profiling the amazing @leilajeffreys the week before last I fell head over heels in love with this guy, Ash the grey falcon. Recently I have been quite good at exercising restraint when it comes to new purchases (on account of the fact that We are currently 'in between houses' and physically have no walls to hang anything on). Then Lisa reminded me that TDF is about to move into a brand new space (our first proper office!) and we would definitely need something beautiful to hang on the walls... And before you know it I BOUGHT it! Aghhh!! I'm SO excited to receive this work and hang this handsome feathered friend where I can admire him everyday. If you're in Sydney you must check out the full exhibition, 'Prey' at Olsen Irwin, opening this coming Wed! 2w
