art is like breathing to me – life and thoughts impressed on paper, cloth, the air
fleeting sounds and images – captured before they escape forever
I create whenever I can because it’s integral to my life – has been ever since I can remember! My arts focus includes eco printing and dyeing (fashion, accessories and textile art); mixed media (handbound books, assemblages); stitching and drawing. I love anything to do with fabric, stitch and dyeing, especially eco dyeing.
In 2015, I launched my eco fashion collection and I am thrilled with the response so far! I give new life to vintage and plain clothing and am especially attracted to garments that have lace or other embellishments. I sell them at my gallery, at markets and online through my website. My background is teaching, community work and management, and my current life has been built on all that, as well as my love of creating.
I have a gallery in St. Marys, Tasmania, Australia, where I host exhibits featuring other artists, along with my own work, and where I teach classes.
