About the Artist

Studio
Hello, as an emerging artist I work with a range of material and ephemera including textiles, sculpture, animation, printmaking and painting to highlight that each of us lives in a state of dangerous distraction, bombarded with choice on a material level, with little or no time left to pursue that which sustains our very essence. I hope that you enjoy my work and I look forward to your feedback: Wendy Powitt

Artist CV

Wendy Powitt is an emerging Australian Artist whose interests lie with a nostalgia for the past merged within a contemporary context.

The artist was taught to embroider by her mother, (an expert Couture embroiderer) as a small child and has continued to work with the medium for over 40 years.

Initially trained as a Fashion Designer, she began to show her art work in 2009 and continues to develop her visual language, as well as running her artisan jewellery business- Ghost and Lola.

Ghost & Lola is featured in high-end boutiques throughout the world. Ghost & Lola is a series of directional pieces, sculpted from vintage components, non-conformist in vision, glamorous and feminine with a distinct contemporary edge. www.ghostandlola.com
