Penny Jewell has long had an interest, indeed an obsession, with plants and their usage. She is particularly interested in the colours and dyes that can be obtained from them. Penny has been experimenting with “eco printing” and botanical dyeing for many years. Over that time, she has developed and nuanced different methods to obtain good, clear botanical prints on many types of fabrics. Penny has both taught and studied botanical printing overseas, gathering knowledge of different plants and methods. Her work is sold in galleries throughout Australia.
