Leonie Oakes

Some of you may already be familiar with Tasmanian bookartist, printmaker and teacher Leonie Oakes' work. If you aren't, and you love these paper dresses as much as I do, I 've found an interesting 2-minute film about her collections and use of paper and books for you to watch. I'm sure you'll enjoy it, especially if you liked Miss Clara.

  4. I really like these dresses. I'm a sucker for anything botanically related. Hard to believe they are paper.

    Her name even sounds like a botanical name!
