All my aunties are fabulous creators of all things textile… it is a German thing, I think. I knitted my first pair of socks when I was 7 – when every family member had a pair, I moved on to jumpers… and ended up studying textiles in Finland many years ago. After textiles, I studied tailoring and then hit London in the early 90’s. I designed knitwear and worked in the theater and film industry for a number of years and made my first few quilts. I moved to Sydney a decade and a half ago to follow the right guy and have not looked back. Many unexpected things have happened since: I started and finished a course at uni (Philosophy) learned to swim, became interested in bees.
After working for a few years in the philosophy department at my local uni, I have now come full circle – by weird luck I met the right person to give me my first job in theatre in 2016, after so many years out of the industry.
I now work for myself, from home, catering for film, TV and theatre.
