    Gone Rustic Studio and Gallery

    As a designer, artist and passionate upcycler, my underlying philosophy is to create products and source materials as ethically as I can. I find and reinvent vintage and preloved clothing, fabrics and other materials with natural dyes and deconstruction techniques, allowing them to inspire my work. Materials for eco dyeing are foraged from our own property, where I can manage the trees and plants respectfully. My business is based in north-eastern Tasmania, Australia; this is where I display and sell my work, host exhibitions, and run workshops.
