Vivienne Crisell

3DA52E21C82846AF8B2BBC9560B7CAA2As a textile artist I have worked mainly in abstracted landscapes using dyes, printing, collage, machine and hand embroidery. I have exhibited in galleries in Australia and overseas and had pieces selected for curated exhibitions e.g., Tamworth National Fibre exhibition and DMC Exhibition of International Embroidery.
In more recent years I have explored many embellishment techniques on clothing and textile articles, combining my love for patternmaking and clothing design with the originality of artistic expression using dyes, paints, fabrics and stitching.
I am fully qualified with a Diploma and post graduate in Colour and Design; a Diploma in Fashion with Honours; and a Diploma in Technical Teaching. I have over 25 years’ experience within the fashion industry as a patternmaker and designer. I have taught in NSW TAFE for over 15 years and I have been teaching my own private classes for the last five years.
