I was born in the country and moved to the city in my late teens. Country is always home and influences my creativity. I work with fibre, colour, line and stitching as my means of expression. I enjoy the learning new skills, processes and techniques to develop and create my own art pieces.
Recent works include collage and art quilts but I usually have some knitting and hand stitching on the go at any given time. I have had success with miniature quilts in the Royal Easter Show in Sydney winning a first prize in 2016 as well as a second in 2017 and third places in years before that. Even though I have been working with fibre for quite a while, I am still excited to begin a new design.
