I experimented with many different materials and techniques early in my sculptural practice but have settled on weaving man made and natural materials.
I joined the Basketmakers of Victoria in 2007 and have since been using techniques developed at workshops held through this generous community based organisation. I predominantly use traditional weaving processes with contemporary materials and enjoy the contrast of old and new. I collect discarded materials and reuse them in the creation of sculpture as I have been dedicated to recycling for an extended period.
In the past I had an autobiographical approach to making art and was influenced by my immediate surroundings and life experiences. I enjoyed leaving the meaning of the sculptural works open to imaginative inquiry by viewers so they become participants in making meaning of the artworks. I have shifted to exploring environmental concerns that have become significant to a growing number of artists.
