“After 40 years of knitting and sewing for the family, it was in my late 50’s that I started delving into my life history. In doing so, my cultural background quickly began to take precedence in my life.From this historical trek came my love and desire to create with coil weaving, a traditional Aboriginal technique that I was fortunate to learn from Master Weaver, Aunty Marilyn Nicholls. Even though I am not from this country, Dja Dja Wurrung, I have lived here 11 years and have learned from and respect the Jaara people, their Elders. I show my respect to this country, their Elders past,present and emerging.”
