Elizabeth Tobin

Through my artworks I have explored my family history and human impact the natural environment. To construct my textile and print works, I use labour intensive techniques to create a contemplative for connecting the past and future in the reality of  present – the ever-changing environment in which we live. My current work brings together two of my passions;  bushwalking and rope making in order to comment on the staggering amount of waste and plastic caused by lack of human care and understanding, which is suffocating our beautiful ecosystems and world.
