Penny Jewell has had an ongoing, all-consuming obsession with both plants and textiles for several decades. Her main interest is in exploring the possibilities of using plants as a dye source. She is particularly interested in the dye potential of Australian flora as most of the local plants have never been tested for their colours.
Her work is sold in many Australian galleries. She has been teaching her dye techniques throughout Australia for several years and she has both studied and taught overseas.
