"Fold and Dye" Scarves

I have been experimenting some more with the new 'Fold and Dye' technique that I discovered a few months ago. I really enjoy the various effects that can be produced through this technique.
It is so interesting to see what the final result will be from the various mix of colours and folds in each scarf.
I will have some more available soon through both my Etsy and new Aussie online store. Stay tuned!
Etsy store: (All prices are in US dollars)
Eyzer store: (All prices are in AU dollars)
I am also pleased to announce that the Queensland University of Technology will be stocking this new 'Fold and Dye' range in their Book Shop. For contact information, please visit their site:

Spicks and Specks Exhibition

I will be exhibiting some of my latest textile pieces throughout the month of August.

Exhibition is being held at Lorenza's, 29 Maryland Street, Stanthorpe. The cafe is open from 9am-5pm (Mon-Fri) and 9am-2pm (Sat-Sun).
If you're in the area during August, feel free to drop in for a look.
A brief abstract of the exhibition is below:
Spicks & Specks – A name chosen to represent the small pieces of our landscape that have been featured in this display of painted silk.

The pictures have been enhanced with thread. I am not an embroiderer, but enjoy the effect created by using stitches in a similar way an artist would use a pencil. Stitches create light effects and patterns on the silk and take the work a step further than the original painting.

I have been painting silk for over 20 years but am forever experimenting with new techniques, dyes and ways of presenting textiles.I use wax as a resist, just as in batik. The white parts are waxed – then the work is painted with dye and then further waxing and dyeing can take place. Each piece is painted with dye about 4 times. The wax is removed by ironing and then washed in shellite, and very hot soapy water.

I also use acrylics and mixed media, but my love is silk and I will continue to stretch the limits of this amazing fabric..

It's a case of Art in the Mill 09

Held on the May Long Weekend (1st – 4th) “It’s a case of Art in the Mill” is now in its 9th year. 10 award-winning artists from Stanthorpe to Tenterfield bring their most recent work together in the unique setting of the historic Ballandean Timber Case Making Mill, Curr Road, Ballandean.

From the microscopic to the ephemeral, the beauty of the local environment has been interpreted by the artists using acrylics, water colours, silk, print making, clay, wood, stone and glass.Guest artists for 09 are Linda Nye, Eva Rasmussen, Allan English, Julie Salmon and Chris Humphreys.

Highly qualified print maker, Eva, studies and records lifecycles looking for the small, often hidden, beautiful structure in organic matter.

Lynda paints with acrylics with a bent towards abstract. Redesigning the landscape, Linda puts her own footprint on a scene through the use of colour, line and brushwork.

Returning this year are water colour artists Julie Salmon and Allan English. Allan’s work is derived from personal visits to the painted locations using striking colours and effective detail. Chris Humphrey’s sculptures in wood and stone send strong messages making the viewer ponder, think and smile.

Regular exhibitors, artist Sue Jurd, wildlife sculptor Maggie Brockie, ceramic artist Alba Conti, master potter Albert Verschuuren, and glass and wood artist Michael Pieper have created a case full of surprises.
Sue’s silk paintings, some enhanced with thread, will range from Australian flora through to large contemporary pieces.

Michael’s talent for fusing glass and local wood has created warm, light filled, two and three dimensional pieces.

Alba is keeping her creations under wraps until opening night.

Albert’s craftsmanship using local clay and ash glazes, has produced superb wood fired pots.

Maggie’s realistic possums, predators, and peaceful stylized animal forms will be discovered hidden among the cases at the mill.

Opening on Friday night 1st May the exhibition continues over the long weekend from 10am to sundown.
