Doreen has a passion for creating unique botanical eco print and naturally dyed textiles. Her recent practice has also included Indigo and Shibori which I took up after a workshop in Brisbane in 2017. Doreen uses a variety of leaves, particularly eucalyptus and other native flora, flowers, vegetables, herbs, spices, bark and other materials such as copper and rusty metals. When the bundles of fabric and organic matter are processed, it’s exciting to unwrap them and see what nature has helped produce. Doreen produces wearable and decorative pieces in natural fibres such as scarves, clothing and homewares with natural fibres - silk, wool, cotton and linen.
