Inspirations: Rosaleen Norton

Rosaleen Norton and one of her cats

The infamous Witch of King's Cross, Sydney, Australia, Rosaleen Norton has been (and still is) a big influence on my textile art.

Timeless - One of Rosaleen's pieces that experiments with layers.

Rosaleen was a very brave woman, openly calling herself a Witch at a time when it was still illegal to do so in Australia, her artwork too was very risque for the time and was seized by Police from galleries and cafes under obscenity laws and was hounded by the press who liked to imply that she dabbled in the black arts and animal sacrifice (something she was very much against).

One of my own prints inspired by the flow of Rosaleen's art
