A little bit  about me                    Contact me

I am a maker.   I need to make and constantly explore.  And have fun doing it! 

My interests are eclectic.  I came to making late and don’t have a formal art education.  I am largely self-taught and I study and play in various mediums from stitch to paint. I find I keep turning back to fabric and fibre.  To this end I have found that short classes have helped my exploration of creative techniques using fabric and fibre and the creation of truly mixed media works.     

In 2008 I took drawing classes and have discovered that, with application and practise, I can draw.   

My exploration of mixed media techniques led to the discovery of Paverpol, a textile hardener which makes fabric weatherproof, and modelling and sculpting using air dried clays.  All things feed each other I have found that pushing myself to do life drawing has really helped me when I am making figure sculptures. 

(I tried welding but it didn’t quite take me where I wanted to go …maybe some time in the future I will make ‘huge’ and need to revisit those skills?)

I regularly exhibit with my home group at the Embroiderers’ Guild NSW and at Guild exhibitions.  ​

I have successful conducted one ay workshops in Garden Art workshops at Azure’s Den in Concord, Sydney Community College in 2015 and private “arty parties”.

Major achievements include:

·         Two touring exhibitions with a group of talented fibre artists:

o    ‘WRAP unwrapped” was hung at a number of venues including NSW Parliament House Sydney in 2009.

o    “MAPS – you  are here” which travelled up the coast commencing at Shoalhaven Regional Gallery, then McGlade Galle.ry at Strathfield Campus of ACU and ending at Cessnock Regional Gallery in March 2014.

·         Making a U tube video series for Embroiderers’ Guild NSW/City of Canada Bay community project.​

IN 2019 I will have works in a touring exhibition with four fabulous artists called  'Off the Beaten Track".  We will be exhibting at Shoalhaven Regional Gallery and Cessnock Regional Galley
