I live and work in the driest state on the driest continent. My textile practice is centred on hand-making and marking cloth objects; embracing occasional costuming for dance & theatre as well as writing. The highly distinctive ecoprint, an ecologically sustainable plant-based printing process giving brilliant colour to cloth remains something of a trademark in my work though it has been shared worldwide. Clients have included Leigh Warren & Dancers and the West Australian Ballet Company. My book ‘Eco-colour’ was published in March 2008, followed by ‘Second Skin’ in July 2011.
I colour cloth using country, making marks with with bio-regionally gathered and ecologically sustainable plant dyes. Frequently I wander the whirled to share skills by teaching.
