About the artist
I’m a textile and fibre artist with a focus on creating contemporary art with a deep connection to the traditional arts and crafts. My art reflects my appreciation for the forgotten crafts of the past. Weaving, basketry and spinning will often be featured.
My designs are kept simple to enable texture and colour to take centre stage and to showcase the interesting and unusual fibres. The materials’ history and story are an important part of the art process. I’m interested in using sustainable materials, such as locally grown plants and wool sourced from Australian sheep. I choose fair-trade/ethical products whenever available.
I am constantly learning by exploring and experimenting, and as a result my art is in continual development.
And the peace and tranquility of my home on the Hawkesbury River and Central Coast is my incubator for creativity!
