I am from Couch Beach, on the Yorke Peninsula. I wouldn’t consider myself an artist I am more of crafter. I have studied fashion design and pattern making, sewing is my number one passion but I am willing to give anything ago. I love spending time on the beach combing for the treasure and waste that I have found to create my bat. Zero waste living has become a big part of my life, I am always looking for new ways up-cycle things that others discard. I decided to create a bat purely because I was asked to. I knew nothing of this amazing cause before being invited. I have always loved sewing for charity and have been involved in a number of fundraisers in the past, doing something a little different this time has been great fun.
