 Coming Events

 

2018

 

No exhibitions this year.  Instead I am working to document my techniques in what I hope will become a book for sale.

 

I am also working on a study of our local Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus regnans) with the intention that it will be displayed in the National Museum in Canberra in an exhibition on Mountain Ash planned for 2020.

 

Spring will bring the usual round of displays, with Grampians Wildflower Show in Halls Gap on Saturday 29th and Sinday 30th September (Grand Final Weekend).  I will have a display of my work and will be happy to show you how it is done.  There will be display of local wildflowers and walks and tours to find special local species, including orchids.

 

The Embroiderers Guild Victoria will be holding their Annual Exhibition from 6-20 October with the theme of "Art Deco Now".

 

 

I have work and cards for sale at Indidj Art Gallery, Marysville (part of the Post Office building).  If you are coming to Marysville during the year and would like to see specific works I can arrange to have them at the Gallery for you - just send me an email.

 

                                

 

General Information

 

I try to convey my delight in Australia's native plants by creating realistic models using machine embroidery. I build the three-dimensional pieces from fine wire and organza, heavily machine stitched with white rayon and/or polyester threads. These are then painted with dye and restitched with hand-dyed threads to add veins and special features. The detail of the piece is important - its myriad colours, the emerging flowers and leaves, and marks of insect damage etc. Each new specimen demands new techniques, and each new technique presents new problems and new solutions.

In 1997 I left Melbourne to travel Australia in a converted Toyota Coaster Bus,exploring the fascinating diversity of the countryside and its flora and fauna. I collected the originals of the peices I now make during those 10 happy years of wandering.  Settling back into a land base was a little bumpy, with the  the bushfires of February 2009 destroying my home not long after I moved in.   I have now replaced the burnt-out bus with a nippy small campervan, and my burnt-out home with a new and much improved structure, with a purpose-built sewing-room (8 double power points!) and a special dyeing area.
