Since 1981 I have been weaving tapestries & participating in exhibitions.
During this time I have woven a lot of tapestries - sometimes it seems like I am producing a woven visual diary as my subject matter comes from life around me. Whether it be places I have travelled to, in Australia & overseas, my garden, items in the different shops I worked in, or dogs & their people… my subject matter lately has been objects, equipment, tools etc from my father's shed that needed to be cleared out when my parents moved to a retirement village.
As tapestry takes a long time I choose carefully before I commit, I tend to weave the images that nag at me & explore subjects by weaving in series. In my last solo exhibition there were 36 tapestries that told of a road trip between my house and my parents house.
