I am currently reading a book on Craftactivism and it discusses what people across the World do with their handmade work to raise passionate awareness on issues or ideas. Since 1993 my textile work has focussed on fresh & salt water and the environment; my commentary on aquatic environments.
With this textile work my targetted comments came to the surface through frustration with the political systems across three states and the Commonwealth that would not address the large water lung that our country families rely upon for their livelihood; The Murray Darling basin and it is still not resolved or providing the satisfactory solutions for most!
Conversely 'Reflections on a saline Land' is in a local government collection and raised funds for the Paralympic Games in Sydney in 2000.
The work can be seen in the Collections section of this website
