Announcement   Welcome to COLORS australia, home of textile & collage artist/designer/maker Sue Catt, in the lovely seaside town of Port Lincoln, South Australia.

I create unique clothing, homewares and accessories using natural fibres, my own handdyed/painted/printed fabrics as well as vintage and recycled elements sourced from near and far. I particularly like Japanese vintage kimono fabrics, Balinese ikats and batiks, Chinese brocades as well as upcycling vintage lace tablecloths & doilies as well as teatowels, tablecloths and other household linens. SLOW fashion at it's best :-)


Because of the nature of collecting fabrics, all my designs are one-off original pieces, never to be repeated!!

I hope you enjoy and appreciate them as much as I enjoy creating them....if you have any questions please send me a message.

Also please visit my FB page https://www.facebook.com/ColorsAustralia for more information about me and my art etc....also check out my instagram page https://www.instagram.com/colors_australia/
And my new website www.colorsaustralia.com

Regards and thank you for stopping by....

Heaps of new coasters in my shop...take a look!!
They make a lovely gift and are light to post.
Have been very popular...made from colourful remnant fabrics and upcycled denim or linen on the back.
My little hoot owls are made of colourful eclectic textiles from my personal collection. Each piece of fabric has it's story and each owl is unique. Such fun happy critters to create. They can be made to order in your special colours, just get in touch grinning

About

Colour your life...

Hi, I'm Sue.
Collage and textile artist, designer and maker in my business, Colors Australia.

‘Looking into your eyes I can see beauty, looking into your soul I can see passion, looking into your mind I can see intelligence, but looking into your heart I can see the world.’
This poem was given to me recently, and I think it goes a long way to explain my art. I create unique pieces, using my passion for colour, textiles and collage. I explore my mind, my heart and ultimately this wonderful place we live, earth.

My inspiration comes from many places and things…rainbows, spirals, feathers…Alice in Wonderland…Dr Suess…leaves, shells, fish…Buddhism and other religions…far away exotic lands…the martial arts…chakras and crystals…the heavens and stars….paint, dyes, threads and yarns…fashion and fetish….light and dark….and many places in between. Some full of insight and meaning. Some more playful and whimsical.

Having trained in fashion, I continue my life long love affair with textiles and sewing in my business. using constant experimentation and playfullness to come up with new ideas. And also am now teaching dressmaking and craft classes, passing on my skills and passion to eager participants.

I enjoy collage (in textile pieces, on canvas based art and greeting cards) in that it brings an environmental awareness and an eco friendly aspect to my work. Found objects and recycling/upcycling feature heavily…in particular vintage kimono fabrics, tablecloths, doillies, lolly wrappers, gift wrap, feathers and other ephermera.

Positive affirmations and symbolism are a big part of my life, so I extend these into my art. Most pieces carry a message of hope, good luck and peace…please enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them…smile, relax, remember to breathe…and treat yourself!

Sue x
