Someone who has a love of colour and trying all sorts of art and craft - that's a fair description.I have tried/played/workshopped many different crafts, including embroidery, patchwork, felting, painting, print-making, digital art, photography,quilting, lead-lighting, sewing, scrap booking, decoupage and cloth doll making.
I am currently enjoying the explosion of colour that can be achieved with resin and just loving the way it moves and layers and flows. Yes, I am addicted!
After attending a polymer clay doll making workshop several years ago, I became hooked on working in this medium. Looking for something to compliment my polymer clay work, I discovered textile hardeners After initially just making faeries, my work has included pirates, elves, Elizabethan ladies, Santa and many more.
I have exhibited at Warragul Rotary Art Show, Leongatha Rotary Art Show, Korumburra Art Show, Meeniyan Art and Craft Show and Tyers Art show, receiving a “Highly Commended” award in 2007 & 2008; a prize at Meeniyan in 2009; First Prize in 2010 & 2011 at Tyers, and an Honorable mention at Art Gippsland 2011..
In 2011 I was priveleged to be the feature artist at Tyers Art Show. I am interested in the mythical and mystical aspects that can be portrayed in both the polymer clay creations and the fabric sculptures. Wanting to extend my knowledge of working in other media, I completed a Trainer course, to be able to demonstrate the amazing results of working with textile hardeners. I also have Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training and a partially completed Diploma in Visual Arts. After many years in the disability and community services sector, I have decided it was time for a change and am pursuing my passion for art and craft!! (and blowing bubbles on the beach).
