E. Tereticornis – Residency February 2017 – Place

When the tree fell, I’d been looking for a plant to work with. I had just finished a body of work ‘Notions of an ordinary yarn’ and part of that had been an investigation into how to use some of the local fibres to make string.

This was an awesome way to really get to know a plant, so I decided to take just one plant and study that for my next body of work. Working out which plant to choose was hard,  I toyed with ideas of residencies at Botanical Gardens or places of significance. Then I thought about the […]

E. Teriticornis – Watching it Grow

The year has begun and it’s time for a bit of reflection before I leap headfirst into the next cycle of creativity and life. What began as a fallen tree, that I’ve become the custodian of has lead me on a journey of learning, patience, new connections and sharing. Tree is now live and the community unfolds online, workshops, pop up exhibitions, stories of trees and inspiration, engaging people to connect with nature. Observing the resilillance and teachers that we can find in our own places.  I’ve loved developing the first series of workshops, they are about creating sensory maps […]

Living Locally

Eumundi Green Issue 241 April 13 2016

The Beautiful thing about living in a community is the support that surrounds you. Here on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland we are surrounded by creative people, and opportunities to show our work. And by a serendipitous series of events, I was invited to show my work at Core Health Chiropractors (Dr Mal Atkins) in his new practice that opened at 1 Myall Street Cooroy, and now this signature piece is on the front cover of the Eumundi Green. Love how the world works sometimes.

The Humble Nest

The humble nest has taken on a multitude of meanings, as I sit and construct and doodle in 3D, with whatever materials are on hand I find my mind drifting off on many tangents. As I become more aware of truly owning my footprint on this planet, value in everything that passes through my hands becomes apparent. Recycling and landfill become challenged as solutions for ‘waste’ that is created in our opulent society. I was given a  glass jar the other day, (with some leaves that I was trying to get some dye from) I asked, “Would you […]

Waiting for Rain

The tanks are low and the vines are hanging from the trees its good weather to dry fibre… but I am obsessed with dyeing at the moment, and for good reason, I am going to be selling my scarves in a beautiful little shop in Nest at the Old Bakery in Eumundi. My dreams are slowly becoming reality, as I am able to spend more time in the workshop making.

After 18months of learning, I have such expectations of what my finished dyeing is going to look like, but have to continually let go and accept the results that appear. Such […]
