FLORAL PARADISE

2015

This work explores alternate ways to create textiles by using elements of slow design and organic methods. To minimise chemical impacts on the environment, I have used linen, natural flower dyes and non-toxic dyes.

The visual concept of this piece relates to models from nature and history and is influenced by gardens in ancient and historic times. The work reflects the art of the garden and its elements through the design process.

 

OF ONE THREE SEVEN

2013

This work is inspired by Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin's 1912 design for Canberra, which was influenced by the garden city movement. The purpose of this series of work is to symbolise the natural beauty, linear structure and native surroundings that the Griffin's incorporated in their design for Canberra.

DECONSTRUCTING FLORA

2011

To the naked eye, nature can be seen as accidental and disorganised. Deconstructing Flora is a series of photographs concerning the exploration of chaos in the natural world. The concept of this work presents flora that has been disassembled and laid out in a grid-like form, portraying that nature is not as jumbled as it seems. The grid form is an illustration for both disorder and structure working together in one image.
