Melbourne’s Marsha Golemac is a paper artist, stylist, visual merchandiser and great creative collaborator. After years working in product design, she has returned to those things which she loved as a child, and spends her days surrounded by mountains of paper and scissors in her Collingwood studio. 

My bestie Brooke Holm and I took a quick trip to New Zealand. It was spectacular – breathtakingly beautiful!

We travelled all over New Zealand’s South Island in search of the highest mountains – they were not hard to find!

Camping grounds don’t exactly suggest luxury but when you’re surrounded by so much natural beauty then roughing it out a little is actually quite amazing. A can of baked beans never tasted so good!

As soon as we came back from our trip, we got right back into Melbourne life, with us both teaching classes during The School’s Melbourne Roadshow. I helped Brooke set up her amazing photography class (and learned a whole lot of photography skills too).

Then it was time for my class. I had a wonderful group of students. We made lots of paper rosettes and enjoyed delicious cheese pops dipped in bacon sand, made by the talented Cassie Lukas from Fire Cracker.

This paper flower heart is a little something I made for the beautiful Megan Park store in Armadale. The MP team and I collaborated on a window concept to showcase the gorgeous Megan Park accessories and gifts for Mother’s Day.

I created a paper installation for amazing Australian retailer Incu. The installation is called “A Golden Age”. It showcases my love for geometry, clean lines and the beautiful contrast between black, white and gold. It can be seen at the Incu Women’s store in QV Melbourne until early June.

In the evenings I work on all types of mini custom orders, anything from paper rosettes for birthdays to paper gem mobiles for a baby’s bedroom. It varies every week, but either way I enjoy making every single one of them.
