About


Hello, welcome and thank-you for stopping by my blog. The Hoarder's Art Room was created in 2014 but art was being created long before that.

Originally from the UK I studied art at GCSE and A level before moving onto university to train as a primary art teacher.  I've worked in various educational roles including primary teaching, museum education, playwork, special education and early childhood education. My own children arrived in 2006 and 2008 which left little time for art.

We emigrated to Sydney, Australia in 2010 and from there to Perth, Australia in 2016. During this time I discovered textile and mixed media art and took many online courses including Lifebook with Willowing Arts, Mermaid Circus with Jane Davenport, several in person and online courses with Unique Stitching and many others which I cannot recall the name of.

I am a member of the 84 Textile Art Group Inc, Textile Arts and Mixed Media Inc., The Western Australian Quilters Association and Feltwest. I'm hoping to join a few more! I teach my own mixed media art group, Mixed Media Makerspace, from my local library and I occasionally teach art classes to home educated children.

In 2017 I'm hoping to develop the Hoarder's Art Room into a business. Perhaps you would like to visit my Etsy shop, Facebook page or follow me on Pinterest. Just click the side bar buttons. Sign up to my newsletter to keep in touch with all the exciting developments I have planned for this year.

Happy Arting

Helen
