Taking "Goodnight in the gully where the white gums grow" by printmaker, Jessie Traill, Australia 1881-1967, as a starting point, Lis has begun a series of images using merino sliver and spun yarn to make an art quilt celebrating "Woman". " Gatherers" attempts to reflect the Australian landscape and the various ways in which women "gather" from it: be it tranquility, it's sheer natural beauty of pattern and colour or it's seeds which can both literally and metaphorically be sown to continue to reproduce in diverse manifestations.

Currently on display at Studio Altenburg,Wallace Street, Braidwood is a selection of hats and scarves, a wrap and a vest inspired by time spent in Central Australia this past winter. The pieces reflect the colours and warmth of the landscape and incorporate natural lines and patterns of the environment.
