Public Art

In the 1970’s, during a well documented craft revival, Valerie expanded her artistic practice to include large scale textile works, many of which were commissioned as public art works. This piece was a commission for the then brand new HBF building in central Perth. It depicts oversized but recognisable local wildflowers and is a combination of knotted, woven, wrapped, stitched and sewn fibres. The piece was approximately 5 metres long and took many months of concentrated work.HBF wallhanging
