Putting together the components for the 100% Recycled Materials Pincushion kits

I am an Australian artist from Queensland living, working and making things in England. I enjoy just about everything to do with textile-based arts practices, particularly if I can reuse discarded materials to adapt them into something new and functional.

This also includes spending time improving and increasing those skills through experimentation, research and adapting past craft project patterns from vintage craft books into something a little more contemporary.

My practice mainly focuses on soft sculpture arrangements, crochet, rugging and embroidery. Before moving to England in late 2013, I hosted a range of creative workshops across regional South Queensland and loved supporting the art that is popping up on the streets more and more frequently across Toowoomba, as well as joining in the conversation.
