In 1956, the mother of Michael Nesmith from The Monkees invented the first correction fluid in her kitchen. As a typist she found she was able to correct mistakes with tempera paint she mixed in a kitchen blender. She named this prototype “Mistake Out” and produced small batches at home for her co-workers. After being fired from her job in 1958, she devoted her time to Mistake Out and eventually offered to sell the rights to IBM, who declined. By 1968, the now-renamed Liquid Paper was profitable and in 1979 the company was sold to Gillette for close to $50M.
HOW I FELT is a series of 200 prints, each in a limited edition of 50.
All are hand-printed in Sydney using dye transfer on acoustic felt tiles.
I sign and number each print.
I love these felt tiles because they look and feel beautiful. As a bonus, they’re designed to absorb sound and improve a room’s acoustics.
L-pins ($10 for 4) or a hanging brace ($30) are a great way to hang my unframed prints on plaster or wooden walls. I recommend a wooden frame for brick or concrete walls. My frames are custom-built in Sydney using solid timber with natural grain. Each frame is $149. Please note that I do NOT include glass because the felt looks better naked. I can provide acrylic (not glass) and a sealed backing for $50 if the work will be hung in a moist environment like a beach house. Click here to add acrylic to your framed order.
I enjoy special requests, be it for a certain product or theme, or work at a specific size. I also work with interior designers to create feature walls that visually and acoustically enhance a room.
