About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Designer, housewife, mother, creative person.
Location Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Introduction I live in a leafy suburb of Brisbane with my darling husband and one or two of my grown up children (depending on how hungry they are, lol), and 2 cats. I’m an optimist. I believe in karma and that what you do and think matters - not just karma for others, either, but for our own thoughts and actions. We have ultimate responsibility for our lives. I have seen and done a lot of living really, but I still feel like a complete amateur sometimes. So much still to learn and do, so many more people to meet, so much to ponder, so much still to discover about the world and myself. I'm incredibly grateful for what has been and what is, and I'm looking forward to what comes next.

Your people want to make a statue in your honor. What will it be made out of and what victory will it commemorate?

The whole thing is made of strips of torn fabric, ribbon, braid and bits of old quilt, woven through wire mesh, and commemorates perseverence against all odds.
