Tell us about the evolution of your concept through this creative development process.
The idea was in the background. Busy hands helped me start the whole process. Printing and bush dying onto the blankets. I had some scraps of possum skins so I started playing. Bringing cultural and European together. It just happened. I started to create necklaces, large scale necklaces.
It’s hard to explain how my work develops. I see what is in front of me and I just work with it. I love to work with upcycled stuff. I have really enjoyed that – finding the value in a woollen blanket. I find them soft and light. My necklaces are soft and light. The possum skin is soft, divine, cool to touch yet has this warmth to it.
