Hello from Australia! You’ll pretty much always find me dreaming about my next favourite shawl – the accessory I most love to design, knit and wear. Otherwise I’ll be wandering about my vegetable garden, nearby bush or perhaps a little escape to the beach.
With a background in painting, I have a passion for colour and interesting design.
Making is my happy place and has been since I was a girl surrounded by the chaos of my mothers textile art and design. She had a basket of fabric that was taller and longer than me – I could literally dive in!
In knitting I have found a craft that resonates deeply within me. My knitting designs come from both a practical need – wanting to create items for myself and others to wear and also a compulsion to express myself creatively. I am influenced by everything around me; fashion, nature, beautiful yarn, favorite artworks.
I design contemporary knitwear patterns, with a nod to retro and geometric design. Patterns that are straight forward to make and fun to wear.
I also love to make jewelry, this love has been focused on knitters jewelry, initially I created these for give-aways – prizes for those who enjoy knitting my designs, due to many requests to purchase these items I am excited to now have my own range of shawl pins, stitch markers and enamel pins available via my etsy store here.
I live in a regional town in Australia, with a vibrant artistic community, with my architect partner and our beautiful son.
