From the Studio

My studio in the bush - Lisa G Hunter Creative

Where bushland and creativity meet

My Dereel studio is situated on 15 acres of sclerophyll bushland. The studio itself is relatively new, but I’ve been inspired by the flora and fauna here for the past 11 years. Poetry, photography, floral surface designs, abstract landscapes – they all come from this land.

If you are interested in the flora and fauna, check out my website Fifteen Acres.

    2019 Explorations 2: Eco-Dying

    Eco-dying avoids using chemicals as a mordant. In place of this, the fabric and paper are wrapped around items made from iron, copper or aluminium to fix the dye to the fabric through boiling them together for a couple of hours. The results are just stunning! Read more

    2019: Recovery Through Art

    At the end of 2018 I had extensive surgery on my spine, which meant I could not bend to take macro photographs of wildflowers: the basis of my digital art. Nor could I use the computer to create surface design patterns for fabric and scarves. Thankfully I am part of an arty community. I spent… Read more

Perhaps the colours are brighter than we remember or, lit from a different angle, we see the cracks that had escaped our attention.… Read more
