Vogue Knitting Live, Pasadena, Los Angeles, May 2016
Images taken by photographer Preston Trauscht of my time at Vogue Knitting Live in Pasadena. I finally got to meet the beautiful Anna and Waejong from Loopy Mango, my kindred spirits in all things big and squishy. I also had fun with the very talented Siedah Garrett who co-wrote "Man in the Mirror" for Michael Jackson.

collaboration with Australian fashion designer Celeste Tesoriero
Throughout 2015, I created a number of new pieces I am yet to launch on to the world. This animalistic sensory pod is one of them. Made from hundreds of felted naturally coloured merino wool tassels applied to an up-cycled vintage hanging chair from Finds On Fitzroy in Cowra, Australia the pod is indicative of where the focus of my art practice will be in 2016.
Sea Art Exhibition
Sea Art: an aesthetic convergence was a collaboration with stylist and ceramicist Lara Hutton. Inspired by the intricate forms and soft muted tones of natural sea treasures washed ashore and housed in a series of still life interior installations, Sea Art captured the beauty created when forms, textures and materials converge.

Pan and the Dream
Texture and I are old friends. I simply adore it.
My work is as much a physical feat of endurance as much as it is a loving creative respite.
Recent works using a number of different woollen fibres and materials, knits and knots. These pieces are made up from a deceptively large amount of wool and carry a great deal of weight. They are brilliant for absorbing sound and add both texture and comfort to a space.
