Patricia is a resident on the land of the Wurundjeri-willam people in Banyule but grew up in Ireland. She was always wearing handmade knitwear, along with learning to knit at the tender age of 4, it is of no surprise that knitting became a major part of her life.

Texture, relief, tactility and importantly using reclaimed yarns, most often are painstakingly unravelled from garment form, are recurring features in Patricia’s work. Her pieces are often abstract but tell a deeper story on closer inspection. Small details made from intricately hand manipulated machine knitted yarn make up a much larger visual feast.
