Catherine O’Leary is an Australian Artist, based in Melbourne who works primarily in the Textile Arts.

With a formal training in Fine Arts, Catherine's portfolio spans thirty years.

Crafting wool felt by hand is a technique which Catherine has been exploring since the 1990’s. 

She has mastered the art of feltmaking and utilises it as a vehicle for the creation of three dimensional forms.

These forms consist of wearable garments such as jackets, dresses, skirts and innovative sculptures.

Silk fibre, fabric and wool fibre are Catherine's preferred textile mediums

Hand dyed, printed, hand embroidered and illustration techniques make  each piece a unique work of Art.

Garments are constructed from very few pattern pieces, styled into elegant, evocative designs.

Most of the fabric used has been recycled, making her practice sustainable and environmentally conscious.
