Yes, this artist is my mother! I'm so excited to share her work with you. She is a Fibre Artist, and creates modern art pieces made from all sorts of fibres and materials. I sat down with her and asked her a few questions about her work!
Eruption - 2012
About: An explosive eruption of brilliant red molten lava.
Ever since I was younger, I have always enjoyed working with a needle and thread and it just morphed into creating art using fibre as my medium.
My favourite work process is to create something that has texture and form and the materials I use just reflect my ideas.
Fibre art today is the “new medium” and the work that is being created around the world is amazing. It’s moving away from being considered a “woman’s” craft to ART.
