It has been a while since I have written a post for my blog....the reason.  Facebook has become the more immediate form of communicating where I am as a  textile artist.  So if you wish to keep up with what I am doing, where you can find me or send me a message please click onto the Facebook link to the right of this post and it will take you directly to my Facebook page. 

Handmade handbag

Handbags are my nemesis I love to design them, they take me ages to make. This one will be available on Sunday at the Studio Pop Up Shop,


Studio Pop Up Shop This Weekend

Some new items I have been working on…My “Rock Pool” range of linen purses.


Window Display

As part of the Ignite the Park Festival in Vic Park I was invited to design and install a window display which would feature my orchids.  I collaborated with another artist who yarn bombed a wonderful branch.  I yarn bombed a table and many orchids.  A professional photographer has taken photos of the window which I will feature later but here is the crew ready for take off.



Wedding Corsage

I was thrown a challenge to create a wedding corsage to go with a beautiful dress to be worn by the Mother of the bride. This is my first attempt at such an important addition to a special day outfit.  Encouraged by the result I am now open to creating more.




My Vogue Shoot

Well not really.  I just used the images from Vogue March 2014 to showcase my new sculptural brooches.




Good Home Needed

I am looking for a suitable stockist outside of the Mandurah area for my Orchids. Either purchase wholesale or on commission basis.
Must be guaranteed to find only good homes for them as I grow very fond of them.
Please contact me  at if you have any suggestions.



Bobbi Jane has again featured a Lulu Tissu design on her blog. .

She certainly does the headband great justice.


Style blogger

It is always inspiring to meet young people who know what they want to do. Bobbi and her sartorial mother visited my stall at Pinjarra last time and this weekend. Check out her blog for pictures of Bobbi wearing a Lulu Tissu beret.  Very stylish.




Live Lighter Pinjarra Festival

I will be at the Pinjarra Festival this weekend 31 May - 1 June at the Edenvale Complex. The weather forecast is OK . Perhaps it is time to buy that scarf and beret as the Winter chill arrives. Hope to see you there. If you purchase from my stall you have the opportunity to enter a competition for one of my sculpture brooches. Please let others know it is on.

A Good Day

It’s OK to pat your self on the back and a couple of weeks ago I did just that.  I had an order for a large number of brooches and only two days to make them in which was already a busy time.  Needing a variety of designs I came up with a new idea which I am happy to report worked.  So did the photos.

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is only a few days away. Perhaps you would like to purchase one of my Fantasy Orchids available at Terrace Art Framers in the Smart Street Mall Mandurah.  Open 7 days a week.

Each orchid is created around an experience or place I have travelled.
