I made my first quilt top – hexagon of course – in 1980, while living in England … with no sewing machine. It wasn’t until 1995 that I learnt how to make this into a ‘proper’ quilt.
I currently focus on contemporary art quilts. Along with eco-dyeing, I am currently using the breakdown technique to develop interesting fabric. Stitch and mono-prints are sometimes added for impact.
I live in Ocean Grove on the Bellarine Peninsula. I enjoy attending workshops where I can learn a variety of textile techniques, giving me an inventory which I can select from to enhance my work.
Gum Blossoms in the Mist
Retail Price: AUD$1800
Dimensions: 143 x 136cm(H x W)
Statement: So nice in the bush on a misty morning. The waving grasses. Upwards to a forest of trees, lush foliage, flowering gums, a canopy of leaves and above that the moody sky. But most entrancing is the wispy and delicately coloured gum blossoms
