I am a fibre artist based in Melbourne Australia, who loves to dabble in freeform knitting/crochet and all things fibre. My work springs from a lifelong passion with colour and texture.
I came to fibre arts gradually having been a knitter from a very young age – starting out with knitting clothing for my Barbie doll in the early 60’s, graduating to knitting jumpers and scarves for family and friends.
In recent years, the yearning has been for a more creative, less structured and playful expression; and a workshop with the doyenne of freeform – Prudence Mapstone – as well as a serendipitous encounter with a babylock embellishing machine gave me my license to play. Since then I have had a lot of fun.
My work is a combination of traditional knitting, freeform knitting, machine knitting and hand and machine felting.
