GALLERY


I have created this page to showcase work I have made since February 2015 .All work is for sale. I have created in a variety of sizes and techniques and prices reflect the number of hours of work each piece has taken. I apologise for the quality of some of the photos but I forgot to take the charger for my camera with me to Europe ( and should you want a better photo I will attempt to  oblige) If you are interested in any piece please email me and I will give you details of how payment can be made ( In Australia via internet banking , in Europe and the US via Paypal , and in France by cheque is a possibility).

All my pieces begin life as white cloth and I use dyeing and printing and transfer dyeing/printing to create colour.They are then heavily stitched by hand or by machine ( I use a normal domestic machine)

I am actually surprised at how much work I have actually made , given that I have been on the road much of the time and lived without power for three months, but then it is my full-time job, and like any other job  it would be  good to have a payday!

Prices are in Euros first ( with the Aus dollar and US dollar conversions in brackets)
