.

I design, create and produce my own textile artwork. The main fibre I use is fine Australian Merino Wool tops. I combine them with silk tops and throwsters which gives an added sheen, all are locally dyed in vibrant colours. I build up layers of wool, silk and textiles creating scenes and images. 


I'm inspired by the changing seasons and the colours of sunsets and sunrises. WA landscapes, waterfalls and seascapes are all rich in colour enabling me to produce vivid images.


I am also able to complete commission work using your favourite scenic photos.

SALLY EDMONDS ART


Sally Edmonds was born in England but has chosen to live in Western Australia. Her career as a dedicated artist is in its infancy although she has painted and drawn all her life. Sally’s main subject matter currently, is birds for which she holds great affection and fascination. In her work she captures a fleeting moment in the lives of a variety of West Australian birds. Her reference material is generously shared with her by local photographers who are just as passionate about these wonderful creatures as Sally is.
 
“It has always been my dream to be an artist and there is so much to inspire me in this wonderful, unspoiled land.”

Over recent months, we have had the absolute pleasure of working with Virginia Casey. Virginia has a passion for producing eco art. She painstakingly collects rubbish off the beach, in the form of plastic and rope and brings them in to be framed. We are now working on her latest piece which consists of pieces of driftwood she has found - can't wait to see the finished product. 

ABOUT VIRGINIA
Her environmental art started last year (2017). While producing and showing this art, she is able to bring awareness of what and how much washes ashore on the Perth beaches. She would like to see this style of art popular in interior magazines and the like, making people aware of this new style and resulting in people cleaning up the beaches to make their own art.

Virginia could see huge benefits in it becoming popular in countries where they have too much rubbish. The locals, making the art and then in turn selling it back to the tourists!
