About

A passion for print...

I'm a textile artist living and working in the Perth hills, Western Australia.
My art career began as a commercial artist in the advertising industry after I completed a diploma in Graphic Design but for as long as I can remember fabric has fascinated me, the colour, pattern, and the way it feels to the hand as well as its sheen or texture. I also loved making my own clothes and then clothes for my 2 daughters.

This led to me going back to school in the year I turned 40 to start my BA in Art at Curtin University. Textiles was my major and I particularly enjoyed all forms of printing and dyeing but also machine embroidery, art quilting and fabric manipulation techniques like cloque - really anything involving colour, texture and pattern!

On finishing my study, I set up my home studio where I continued my work but I missed the facilities of the university, particularly being able to make photographic silk screens. So I eventually bought a thermofax machine to make my own screens for screen printing. This was quite a big expense for a self employed (not quite starving) artist. To help pay for the machine and materials, I decided to offer a screen making service to enable other artists and craftspeople to print their own designs, or alternatively, my designs by ordering screens from my Etsy shop.

I enjoy seeing my customers' designs and how they use them - love receiving photos of their prints or finished articles and I also enjoy helping with information on design, artwork, printing techniques and materials. I want them to have a good experience with creating their prints and I will advise them if I think their design won't work or needs refining.

I plan to add some of my own textile work to my shop soon.

Hi, thanks for your interest in my shop.

My thermofax screens are listed with frames but can also be ordered without a frame. Please contact me if you do not want the frame included.
They all have 70 mesh which is most suitable for fabric printing but can also be used on paper.

If you would like further information on any of my products, ordering a custom made product, shipping or policies, please contact me.
