to my web site.
My name is Elizabeth
Morley and I’ve been a textile artist for nearly 20 years.
What started as a hobby quickly became an all consuming way of life.
My greatest joy is working with fabrics, threads, paints, dyes,
prints and everything and anything in between. The catch cry in
our household is “don’t throw it out, Mum can stitch
into it!” Experimenting and pushing boundaries is an endless
delight and food for my soul. My studio is stacked with “things”
yet to be explored. I work amongst organised chaos with my helpful
cats and two large dogs and spend happy hours destroying perfectly
good fabric to create something new.
Over the years I have
drawn on nature for much of my inspiration, but recently I’ve
found that I am increasingly amazed and touched by the courageous
way people cope with adversity. The variance of human fragility
and inner strength fascinates me and I find myself depicting this
more and more in my work.
This website introduces
the "Catalyst Textile Workshops" and
includes easy access to information relating to textiles and
leading textile artists from Western Australia. I hope you will
Visit my Gallery and enjoy the artwork.
