Artist Bio

My first workshop in 1992 was with the wonderful Polly Stirling – “Magical.” While the basic techniques of felting apply to all my pieces, experimentation, and my creative instincts have led me to develop a dynamic style all my own. My imagination is constantly fired by the endless possibilities as one idea leads to my next creation. After 30 years of living in northern NSW, the move in July 2010 – to “come home” to Wangaratta, the town I grew up in and close to family – was an easy decision. My studio is my playground.
