I trained as a teacher and worked across a variety of educational fields throughout my career. There has always been a parallel universe of working with textiles - be it clothes and other wares for fairies and dolls, for myself, for family or for amateur theatre. A recent contract with Sydney Living Museums saw these skills blossom in the workplace and paved the way for sewing and creating to define my current working life. As such, I am an 'Elder' finishing my career - doing what I absolutely love doing and being well-supported by family, friends and the community in this endeavour.
