In 2013 I returned to Australia with the specific purpose of studying with renown artist and teacher, Ann Small ( asmalldesign.weebly.com ) from the UK.
From Ann I learned a technique of layering fabric and after sewing through all layers, cutting them and opening them back to reveal each underlying layer.
Using this technique I decided to make a piece for the upcoming show at Lorang Fine Art (www.lorangfineart.com ) titled “Women In Motion”. I wanted to showcase women that I found to be inspirational role models both in my own life and in history in general.
I started with Jane Austen, an English novelist, (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) one of the most widely read writers in English literature.
Then I added Florence Nightingale, (12 May 1820 – 13 August 1910) a celebrated English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing .
