Article in Australian Patchwork & Quilting

This month you can find out a bit more about me in Australian Patchwork and Quilting Magazine, vol.23, issue 10.

They left out the paragraph on influences so I thought I would include it here:

Whose works are you drawn to and why?

At the moment I really love the work of Cal Lane – http://www.callane.com/ . I love the lace created out of metal and the crazy juxtaposition of things once solid made light.  I love the work of Flossie Peitsch (no relation and yes, it is spelt differently!) http://flossiepeitsch.com/ because she pushes me to think differently. I love Anne Griffiths (http://www.pocketmouse.co.uk/home.php) because she brings me back to the world of embroidery and once again brings metal into the picture (check out her collaboration with Paula Groves –Anamnesis – stunning!)

Beginning Again

This blog will become my new permanent home from my old blog at TextileXplorations. TextileXplorations began in 2006 when I joined in on one of Sharon Boggan’s TAST adventures. It contains mostly technique based information about creating textile art. It became the play space for my business Essential Textile Art where new products could be trialled and the results put on show.
