The field of textile art is an ever-broadening one, with scope to develop new ideas and concepts with a range of materials, products, manipulations and processes.

 

I am excited by the possibilities and the directions open to me to explore building, one, two and three dimensional textile artworks, with traditional and modern fabrics that can be altered by employing mark making processes including textile paints, inks, dyeing, printing, hand and machine embroidery,

to mention a few.

 

I have access to a wealth of recyclable materials that I can repurpose to give a new lease on life as artwork.  Many of these works are planned from sketch to tying the final thread, others just happen in front of me, seemingly coming to life with only a modest effort on my part.

 

Having a very fertile imagination, an extensive textile resource library for added inspiration and a well-stocked generous studio space, I am only limited by the number of hours and days available to play, discover and create.

Life as a textile artist is fascinating, exciting and rewarding in so many ways.

2014 graduate from Whitehorse Institute of Technology's

Caz's work has been significantly influenced over the years by Textile artists from around the world, beginning with Australia's most famous lady of stitch, Annemeike Mein, England's Alison Holt and Kathleen Matthews, Landscape Artists and Janet Edmonds, a three dimensional embroidery artist, also from England.

Caz predominantly works by process, drawings, journal work and auditioning materials new and recycled, enhancing fabrics by dyeing, printing, Shibori stitching and rustwork to mention a few approaches, to incorporate and imbue work with textural dimensionality.
