The Coral Reef Project was fun to be involved in.  I contributed  a few pieces that  fitted into the large colourful installation at the Power House Museum in Sydney.

I like to print onto fabric, crochet and knit with cotton and wool or any fibres. I sometimes crochet pieces that are later pieced together for an outfit. Collaborating with a designer I like to create an outfit with the fabric pieces.

Printing and dyeing cotton and silk fabrics often tell the story of a trip or just a fun thing to do.
