Colour is king in my world. It alone can inspire new work. I am an Australian textile artist who uses free machine embroidery in a quilt format to produce vibrant, on-off pieces of art. My current work covers the entire surface of the substrate with wonderful, shimmering thread and stitch in a glorious array of colours. I am passionate about producing original work which pushes the concept of quilts as art.

Skin of the World

Retail Price: AUD$4500
Dimensions: 119x119x25cm (H x Wx D)
Statement: This work shows further exploration of recent work using circles.  I’ve worked small, used varying changes of scale, now with this work I have worked large.  The huge dimension is caused by the density of stitch manipulating the substrate.  Worked on acrylic felt using rayon and polyester threads.
