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.
