About Carly Leech

My style is nature in textiles. I am highly influenced by the movement of grasses and flowers in the wind. I love to capture the colours, textures and shapes of flowers with my sewing machine. I stitch on to yarn using free motion embroidery techniques or drawing with a sewing machine. The threads are my pencils. The yarn my paper.
I won the Best 3D Artwork in 2015 and Highly Commended in 2016 at the Mount View Art Show and had a highly successful exhibition at the Bulleen Art and Garden Nursery in October 2016. I have had a display of garden bowls, garden bookmarks and framed embroideries at Wyreena in Croydon from January to the end of April. I will be taking part in the Autumn Artistry Exhibition at The Alcove in Box Hill in May 2017 and The Mount View Art Show in June 2017. I have a constant display of my work at Redgum Gallery in Olinda, at The Alcove in Box Hill and now at The Art and Garden Nursery in Bulleen. A collection of my garden bowls is now part of the Whitehorse City Council Collection and are displayed quite often at the council chambers. I also have an etsy shop called WeavingEnvy.
