Beyond Ordinary

I'm delighted to be part of this exhibition coming up at Sturt Gallery in the Southern Highlands. "An extraordinary exhibition showcasing the work of 28 of Australia’s most inspiring contemporary makers."

I will be launching a new series "A Stitch in Time". In Australia, mosaic is currently predominantly practised by women and balances on the cusp of craft and art. My work explores this area by focussing on the crafts of knitting and embroidery, often seen as being the traditional domain of women. I also have some collaborative pieces with woodworker Ruth Thompson.

The exhibition runs from 13 February to 3 April 2022. All are welcome to the opening.  The catalogue is available here
