Welcome to the world of Lobly Arts.

I am an artist, living in the south west of Victoria, on the outskirts of Warrnambool. My studio overlooks the glorious southern ocean – much of my inspiration comes from the wonderful environment surrounding me.

I paint, draw, make prints and take photos, but my primary love is textile art. I love creating with natural yarns, fibres and fabrics. I create textile arts using silk, wool, cotton. I love to begin with pure natural undyed fibres, yarns or fabrics and creating something from the very beginning. In fact the coloured wools I use for felting and spinning are ‘home grown’ from our flock of sheep and alpacas.

My textile arts include spinning, weaving, knitting, felting, sewing, silk painting. I love to make my own colours for these creations using various dyes – nowadays I am rediscovering the joys of natural eco-dyeing and printing using dyes sourced from nature, including leaves and plants collected locally – many grown in my own garden. I also use some commercial dyes for added bright colours.
