Carolyn lives in Bundanoon, a rural township two hours out of Sydney, with her husband, Ken, and her cat, Orlando. She lives on five acres of flat, plateau country surrounded by eucalypt and deciduous trees in a park like site. Its cool climate, with its many gardens, closeness to the escarpment and beautiful mists, provide lots of inspiration for her work. Her work on various committees, as president of both The Quilters’ Guild NSW and Ozquilt Network, with the Quilts 2000 project, have given her an insight into the wider picture of the Australian quilting world. Carolyn is a trained high school teacher who enjoys teaching people to find their own creativity and to produce stitched works that are meaningful to the maker. In recent years, she has gained a Diploma in Art History from Sydney University. Keeping scrapbooks of her designs and thought processes is an important part of her life. These many scrapbooks are a key source of inspiration as they reference all the things she has seen and read about and all the places she has visited for design and color for new works.
