Textiles and beading (free form)
I have had a love of textile arts for as long as I can remember, but brought into fruition by an art teacher in 1983, doing year 12. This includes a love of beading, both hand and machine embroidery, and surface embellishment.
Since joining T’Arts in 2007 I have mainly concentrated on beaded jewellery. I am now coming back to my textile roots and planning to show more of my framed pieces.
My work is very organic and is based on a love of nature. I gain alot of inspiration from the natural world around me, especially in the close up. Leaves, flowers, beach debris, trees and fungi are just a few of my sources of inspiration.
