"My textile art framed wall hanging 'Old Mate Emu' , is a portrait of an emu perched behind an embroidered native flora crown."

Images of Work

"After experimentation and given professional advice, the framing of the design concept unifies the aesthetics. However, the framing also provides functional properties as it preserves the piece but also enables ease of hanging."

"Incorporating the embroidery of 'Fly Stitch' into the design concept has enhanced the surface decoration aesthetically by creating a more realistic and dimensional Waratah. This helps the design concept to align with the design inspiration of Australiana."
