Since living in the Ranges, I have pursued a variety of artistic endeavours including silk painting using various Shibori techniques, felting and indigo dying. When I retired a few years ago, I took the opportunity to learn from the local artists. I am currently exploring the medium of Encaustic. Using this rich, organic medium for the first time recently, I have enjoyed its versatility and hope to go on and create larger pieces. I love the sensory experience of working with wax and am delighted when the “happy accidents” occur.
Messy but graphic may be my ‘thing’.
Encaustic, 23cm xc 30cm: $175

Completed Japanese Boro style quilt using various fabrics (silk, chiffon, cotton voile, linen, muslin, etc) which have been dyed with natural indigo. Thousands of hand stiches using cotton perle wander through this labour of love.
