Art, Writing and Photography

Where it begins…

My creative work is inspired by the heathy woodland surrounding my home in Central Victoria.

We are like rough pieces of wood. We can stroke ourselves with silk and velvet, it is nice, but it won’t make us smooth. To be smooth, we need sandpaper. Difficulties, problems and challenges are the sandpaper which makes us smooth. We should be grateful for these.

Musing Meanders Designs

Musing Meanders Fabric

Musing Meanders fabric designs begin in the sclerophyll  bushlands of Central Victoria, Australia. Textures and colours are drawn from bark, moss, wildflowers and wildlife.

I came to fabric design through photography. My original photographs are my source of inspiration for Musing Meanders fabric designs.  In dry bush, often the beauty of flora is in tiny details. Colours and textures also change with the seasons. My designs capture these details – sometimes faithfully, sometimes playfully in abstract form.

I use Spoonflower and Redbubble to sell my work:
