About me

Industry Arts
Location Merimbula (Far South Coast), New South Wales, Australia
Introduction Creating for me is essential! It feeds my heart and soul. It is a large part of who I am. I have a passion for vintage fabrics, silks, velvets, laces and embellishments inc. jewellery which I incorporate into my collages for journals etc. My love also of antiques, time worn treasures - all things tarnished, tattered and pre-loved goes hand in hand with my creativity but above all I try to live a simple self-sufficient rural life style with my husband inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds us here.
Interests My wonderful rambling country garden of roses, dahlias, irises etc. our property, Angora goats, vegi garden and fruit trees. Creating with fabric and fibres - crazy quilting, mixed media, dyeing, braids, lacework. Yoga and Meditation is a big part of my life also
