I am a mixed media textile artist. My main medium was clay and creating ceramic works until I learned about the amount of fabric and clothing that ends up in landfills every year. After moving to a smaller house where there was no room to continue my ceramic work I bought a vintage sewing machine, got some upcycled fabric, and made things!
I knew my sewing would go in an arty direction and the work I now create allows me to use my love for working with paint and other types of materials with my love for working with upcycled fabric to make my colourful, and often quirky, textile artworks.
Having a creative business is a blessing and means I can work to my strengths. I have a disability so being able to take it slower on my not-feeling-so-good days is wonderful!
I live in Whangarei with my two rabbits Angel and Peter.
SHIPPING COSTS: Flat rate shipping of $5.50 per order to New Zealand addresses. All items in the order must be shipping to the same address.
I aim for the courier to pick up orders within two business days of receiving them. This does depend upon the time of year and how busy the courier is.
PACKAGING: I use Pass the Parcel courier bags to ship orders. These can be recycled in soft plastics recycling bins. Visit https://recycling.kiwi.nz to see if there's a soft plastics recycling bin near you. Internal packaging is a mixture of handmade and recycled materials.
