New piece by Christina

I’ve been working again after my maternity leave. This is one of my first pieces, which continues my Shards series.


This piece, like the others in the series, is made of styrofoam coated with papier-mâché and finished with acrylic paint. It differs from older pieces in the application of the papier-mâché; previously I covered each piece individually, but here the papier-mâché covers everything with one skin.

2nd Boddinale: Call for entries


Boddinale is a local film festival in the heart of the creative Berliner Kiez Neukölln. Its name comes from the street where it is hosted, Boddinstrasse and what makes this festival particularly interesting for independent filmmakers is that it takes place during the big boys festival: the Berlinale. What could that mean for you? Well, all the film world has its eyes in Berlin during the Berlinale, so if you have your film playing somewhere, even if it has nothing to do with the official event, if you´re savvy enough you can get attention to your film.

But this is not the ultimate goal of the Boddinale, in the end the purpose is to give independent filmmakers a room to showcase their work. It is an event from the community for the community and it is absolutely free.

So they have an open call for entries until December 31st. Head off to www.boddinale.com to submit!

On that note, at yesterday’s Lemontown meeting, a few of us discussed where we would go if we could travel anywhere in the world, like my children’s book character Nina, who has a magical travelling shed!

I’m currently looking for inspiration for the next book, so if you have any great ideas, suggest via the Nina and the Travelling Spice Shed Facebook Page!  Awesome destinations will be collected on Pinterest so check it out!
