Kaye Adolphson, Lilydale, Vic, Australia

I grew up on the side of a mountain in the Upper Yarra Valley in a small country town called Millgrove situated on the east side of Melbourne, Victoria Australia.

I have many memories of exploring the rich lush bushlands full of tree ferns and tall timbers with thick green and brown undergrowth. Sometimes we would be lucky and watch a lyrebird dancing on its nest if we were very quiet and still while listening to it imitating the bird life.

I have tried to capture the essence of these memories in this piece. The dappled sunlight trying to filter through the tall gum trees, the spring growth of the tree ferns and the damp mouldering undergrowth of the rain forest. Textile Artist
