Based on the landscape, and a strong sense of colour and design I react to what feels right as I create my work.
Born on a sheep property I’ve grown up with wool and so it is not surprising that felting is the process I use to create my vessels. I use felt as it’s an ecological, sustainable textile.
I am represented in galleries though out Australia, internationally and exhibit regularly in art prizes, group & solo exhibitions. I teach felt workshops regularly, including the AGNSW, Portugal and London.
2020 my work has been a finalist in the Australian Textile Art Awards.
2019 I was represented in The Netherlands, Buren. 2018 my sculptures were exhibited in Chateau de Gizeux, Loire Valley, France and a finalist in the Wangaratta Petite Miniature prize, Greenway sculpture prize and my machine embroidery pieces were selected for a travelling exhibition through out Europe and Australia.
2017 I was selected as a finalist in Scythia 8th International awards, Ukraine and 2016
won the Annandale Sculpture prize and also a finalist in Stanthorpe, Hunters Hill & and Hornsby sculpture prizes. My sculptures were selected in the Harbour Sculpture prize 2015/2017 and the same years I won “Textures of One” prizes. In 2016 my sculpture received highly commended in the Buda Contemporary Textile Prize, Castlemaine, Vic.
My 2-D art piece and felt sculptures were selected for the Biennial “World of Threads Festival” in Canada 2012/2014. In 2014 I won the Hornsby Sculptural Art Prize and 2015 received the judges highly commendedand I was a finalist in the Broken Hill Outback Art awards
