Its Great to have Friends!!

A while ago I had my first solo exhibition at Gallery 159 in Brisbane.  It was wonderful to have the whole gallery to myself!!  I made a series of art pieces for the wall and also made lots of one off designer garments.  I asked a few of my friends to model for me and this is the result!! We used my backyard to photograph my wearables. 
More in my next post!!

Keeping Up the Interest!!

Just a few more images to keep you interested!!
 These are boots I made during a workshop with Luna Newby.  I inserted fabric I made.  This piece is called Jaffa Crush.  The fabric being crushed is 3D Shibori.

This piece won The Most Beautiful Scarf at the Melbourne Scarf Show quite a few years back.  Silk Shibori and Acid dyes.

This piece has gone to a private collection and is called Sunset Fabric.  Silk Chiffon, Acid dyes.

Off to a good start!!

Finally decided to start blogging!!
Spent yesterday at a photo shoot for my Shibori pieces for the exhibition Wabi Sabi: The Beauty of Impermanence.  This is on from 21st August to 4th October 2015 at Redland Art Gallery in Brisbane.

Thought I would start by posting some images of my past work.
