Introduced to felting in 2005, I am constantly learning and experimenting with techniques in felting and embellishing and love working with beautiful merino and silk fibres to produce scarves, wraps, vests and jackets. I love to use used mixed media techniques in my work – printing, painting, felting, hand and machine stitching to obtain exciting and interesting textural surfaces. My most recent direction has been experimenting with eco dyeing, with all dyes and mark making being derived from plants, mainly eucalypts and other natives. One of the joys of my involvement in the textile arts has been networking and sharing with other artists.
