Exciting Things a Happening

Notes

Friends! You have not heard from me much of late, this is due to the fact that at the pace of a drunken snail I am inching towards a new showcase for my works..

Branching out from my food and recipes, I have, over the past few years, developed some much loved new additions to my body of works and I am thrilled to soon be showing them off in a brand new format. Never fear, the much loved recipes and their accompanying installation illustrations will still feature. But, also sharing the spotlight will be my Bridal illustrations, my favourite Fashion illustrations from over the years and my new exciting direction, the Enfant series.

Currently in the works is a new site where you will be able to view my full range of illustrations, where you will be able to follow my daily musings through my new blog and where….drum roll please….you will finally be able to purchase reproduction prints and cards of some of my favourite illustrations!

With many grand plans in the works, I will be (slowly) rolling out my ideas over the course of this year, I do hope you enjoy my new direction and I will be sure to redirect you to the new site once it’s up and running.

Can’t wait? Follow me on instagram @alexandra_nea for sneak peeks x

Hello Art of Afternoon Tea readers! Yes, I am aware I have been away for longer than promised but I have just been so inundated with Fashion Bridal Illustration requests that there has been simply no time to bake!

What with Autumn just around the corner and my growing desire to commence consuming cake, muffins and scones again I hope to be back with some fab new recipes and accompanying illustrations very shortly.

In the mean time I wanted to share with you my latest favourite Bridal Illustration, a recent piece created for newly launched wedding business, La Belle Mariée. A gift bag delivering beautiful products and services direct to future brides in a unique and stylish way.

Now off to spend this rainy Sydney weekend drawing beautiful brides and hopefully a cake or two!

A Brief Hiatus

All the cupcakes have nearly gone, time to start afresh and bake some new ones

All the cupcakes have nearly gone, time to start afresh and bake some new ones.

 

Notes

After a rather hectic year of renovations, moving out and back in again, working full time, getting to know my new oven and madly trying to fit in creating new illustrations, the time has come to take a little break from my weekly posts, recharge the batteries and work on an exciting stack of new ideas, recipes and illustrations for you all over the Christmas holidays.

Never fear, I will be back in the new year with brand new tales, illustrations and recipes to share. 2013 will also be bringing the chance to own your favourite The Art of Afternoon Tea illustrations as limited edition prints, greeting cards, tea towels, aprons and more!

Now, I do remember a little bet with the hubby, no new china until I have drawn the lot…well hate to break it to you my friend but the time to replenish has come!

Best wishes and a very Merry Christmas to you all, I am off to the markets with an empty basket ready to fill, see you in the New Year!
