Oh I dooooo love Autumn. And I do looooove being in my studio with the birds singing in the background….I’m a lucky girl. Ok, well I’m getting ready for my next exhibition – “FASHION[ING] FORMS: The Craft of Making” for the 2014 Telstra Perth Fashion Festival (TPFF) Signature Exhibition.
I don’t want to spoil the event too much – but of course I am working on new print designs…and NEW products too…even starting to think about making fashion again ( I constantly get asked when I will start making fashion again)…soon, soon, soon…..

Welcome to 2013, the year of the snake!
01 Mar 2013
Welcome to 2013 – Year of the Water Snake! According to Chinese Astrology 2013 is the Year of the Snake whose colours are black and green – one of my favourite colour combinations. My Chinese Astrological sign is also the Snake so I am looking forward to a creative year influenced by the Snake’s mobility, dynamism, and changeability – it’s exciting stuff for my creative soul! Here is a sneak peak of a print from my new ASHE collection coming out in February – it’s called “Sacred Temple” and depicts a floating world washed in green. Happy New Year to you all – may the Snake bring you a year where anything is possible!
01 Dec 2011
Hello Summer! My textile designs are always influenced by the seasons…by the changes in my own garden…the plants, insects and colours. Although snails are a bit of a problem at times in my garden, this new print features them anyway; in all their sluggish glory…hail to the snail…ENJOY the SUN!
