My name is Anne Jillett.
I live and work in Far North Queensland Australia. My studio is situated deep in the rainforest overlooking the canopy to the spectacular Wooroonooran National Park.
All things textile have held a fascination for me since early childhood. This passion combined with a deep love of the natural world inspires and informs my practice of sculptural basketry and contemporary embroidery. Specifically, I am drawn to the ocean and it's beachscapes, as well as the drama and colour of the wild desert country of Central and Northern Australia.
I care deeply about environmental concerns that effect our world and Australia in particular. While I am not an activist, I hope that my work prompts compassionate consideration of our natural resources and home.
