new directions 

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

Acollaboration with Nathalie Agussol of Pan and the Dream. Photography by Paul Westlake. Make up by Peter Beard. Model - Gem Hanley. Textiles designed and made by me using Little Dandelion yarn.


Texture

Texture and I are old friends. I simply adore it.



Scale

My work is as much a physical feat of endurance as much as it is a loving creative respite.


Private Commissions

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.
