Description

"Golden Fan" is part of an art project called 5000 Trees. This work was inspired by the book The Hidden Life of Trees.
Each of my textile artworks holds within its fibers the essence of the Tasmanian Rainforest that grows on my property at Golden Valley. The silk used in each work is hand dyed with the gum leaves collected from the forest floor.

Golden fan was inspired by the stunning autumn display of colour seen at Cradle Mountain in Tasmania, Australia, when the Deciduous beech, or Fagus, Nothofagus gunnii go from green to gold. The deciduous beech is Australia only deciduous tree.

The trees are lovingly freestyle stitched on my sewing machine by hand making each and every one unique. The background is 100% cotton fabric. The work is ready to hang on your wall, signed, given a number and a certificate.
Each work is unique. I do not use a computerized sewing machine.
I donate $2 for every tree stitched and sold to Landcare Australia.
