Remember when you spent your time dreaming up magical places and fantastic creatures? Well, Sarah-Jayne McCreath still does that. Her art feels like childhood imaginings entering an adult world. It bursts with playfulness and recalls all things weird. It's a fascinating combination.
Indeed, hers are the type of pieces likely to spawn their own mythology, and the type to get grouped together in an exhibition called Drongos, too. They're both cute and a little creepy, and they're the perfect thing to look at while you're having a coffee. Yes, really.
If you head to Haven Espresso at Stafford Heights until the end of December, you can do just that, enjoying something creative with a caffeine fix or a tasty snack. McCreath — aka Beara, the name of her imagination playground — is the cafe's featured artist of the month, with her works not just adorning the walls, but available for sale as well.
