The notion of landscape – the natural environment around me and the mysteries of mind, mood and the subconscious all qualify, for me. Dreamscapes, imagination, memory and creativity connect with coast and country in abstract forms. Our inner and outer worlds intersect and often collide, tangible and intangible layering upon each other and themselves. Fibres of wool, silk, and plants are moulded, sculpted, warmed into stable materials and expressions. Plants provide colour in dyes and prints, on paper and fabric, in vats, dye pots, pastes and ink. The uniquely Australian, abundant materials of merino and eucalypt provide rich, varied sources and endless inspiration. My latest obsession, a collage of felt, fabric, paper, dye, print, stitch, an abstract echo of the idea of landscape.
