Occupation textile artist
Location Perth, Western Australia, Australia
Introduction I am a textile artist and owner of The Thread Studio. I am passionate about all areas of textile art and try to be as cutting edge as I can. I enjoy machine and hand stitching, developing ideas using a needle felting machine and playing and experimenting with all manner of textiley and mixed media stuff. I guess I am an art journaller of a different variety before the title became trendy but my journals are more the stitchy variety than the paper types. I have been a teacher for many years and run a number of on-line and in the flesh workshops. I have written a book on using a needlefelting machine 'Surface Tension' and four Let's Play booklets. I have been published in many magazines around the world. Our new e-mag threads.In-fusion was launched in June 2013 with a fabulous response - Issue1 - 12 are available for you to buy. And I am a passionate All Black supporter - some would call that a tragedy.....and what a wonderful win for the All Blacks at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. 2016 my beloved Hurricanes have finally won their first Super Rugby Championship Visit my pinterest page
