Yarn graffiti artist, teacher and crafter.
The ‘Yarn Wrap’s work has been found all around Melbourne. Last year she contributed a number of pieces to the ‘Big West’ Festival in Footscray. She has also tagged around Fitzroy, St.Kilda and Bayside Melbourne. She studied at Sydney University in the early 90’s and qualified as a Textiles & Design and Food Technology teacher. She has taught in London and Sydney and is now teaching in Melbourne. She has tried many crafts including glass fusing, felting, lace work and screen-printing. Her current love is wool, which she knits and crochets into beanies, corsages, wrist warmers scarves and tags. The ‘Yarn Wrap’ is currently preparing work for the ‘Melbourne Satellite Reef’ a Hyperbolic Crochet Reef on display at the Burringja Gallery in Upwey from 9th October.
