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.
We have a lively family with teenage kids and with lot’s of animals. I now work in the Philosophy Department of my local uni and stitch and create as much as I can when I am not working.
