Sue Tate is an emerging textile artist aiming to capture the essence of place and beauty of the Otways and southwest coast landscapes.

I am studying a Diploma in Visual Arts Textiles at the Lavers Hill campus of SW Tafe with the very talented, Sue Ferrari.

I relish the creative processes of visual art. I draw inspiration from colours and textures of the living landscape and seascape; every day the view changes. When it is windy and stormy the pallet is grey, the darkest blue and green.  In the sunshine, the sea is azure blue and white; the valley a brilliant green.  The hues of the limestone cliffs along the coast change from the palest honey to deepest rust.

In my study I aim to achieve a level of excellence and person style from which I can become a successful professional textile and fabric artist. My hope is that you enjoy the pieces as much as I do making them.
