Judy Hunter in Brief.

You’ve been a valued member of Fibres and Fabrics since it was founded which indicates that you have always been a creative person. Can you define yourself – art/craft wise? I am not really creative. I am much more of a technician but very interested in a wide range of arts and crafts.

Are you more comfortable working in one particular medium than most others? Yes probably patchwork and cross stitch.

Are there any artists or crafters who, more than any others, have influenced you in your creative life and why? No one individual who stands out. I have learned from many tutors. Maybe Pauling Roberts from Toowoomba.

Describe your workspace. Cluttered. The back bedroom which needs to be cleared if we have too many people come to stay.

What 3 tools could you not live without? Probably scissors a needle and some thread.

Do you keep a sketchbook or journal? No, I take photos of projects when completed.

We all share our knowledge at Fibres and Fabrics. Do you extend this in any way by participating in or teaching workshops? I participate.

How do you inspire your creativity when you’re stuck?  Usually by starting a new project and leaving another UFO.

If cost wasn’t an issue, what avenues would you choose to explore to expand your skills? I see it rather as time as an issue. It is so easy to become overloaded when you are retired.

How do you balance your life? Badly. Always too much to do and too little time.

Has any of your work appeared, or is it going to appear, in a display or exhibition either collaboratively or alone? If so where and when? Only in Fibres exhibitions.

What does your work mean to you? I feel a sense of achievement when I complete a project.
