Alison SchwabeAlison was born in Australia in 1946.  As a child she learned sewing and embroidery skills which have become the basis of her lifelong interest in textile and fibre art. A former geography student married to an exploration geologist, processes of erosion and deposition which act on landscape to bring about changes in shape and texture have always informed her designs.  Man's activity in and with landscape has been another source of inspiration.  

Alison's work is regularly selected for prestigious exhibitions within Australia and overseas, and is held in several private and public collections.  She accepts commissions; occasionally teaches and writes magazine articles; and maintains a blog or virtual visual diary.
