I am a retired public servant living on the South Coast of New South Wales Australia, reveling in the time I now have to indulge my passion of surface design. When I am not having fun with paint and dye, I am riding my bicycle along the beautiful scenic coast, or kayaking on the many lakes, estuaries and inlets in this area. I live with my husband of more than 40 years and have three grown daughters and six grandsons.
Since retiring I have been able to renew my interest in Japan, which began in 1975 when I did a twelve month intensive language course. I finally made my first visit in 2016 and am now in love with indigo and persimmon dyed fabrics, boro, washi paper and the general Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi.
I have been an accredited teacher with Canberra Quilters since 1997, and am very much looking forward to returning to teaching in my retirement.
