Kirry Toose (NSW)

Kirry Toose trained in Dress Design at the National Art School at East Sydney Tech. Her art evolved through traditional design skills in life drawing, patternmaking and grading, silk screen printing, garment construction and fashion rendering.

A ‘fear of stagnation’, as Kirry terms it, means that her creative practice is continuously
evolving, making each piece identifiably her own, with much attention to finishing and detail.

Technology is influencing Kirry’s work, although the purposeful combination of more traditional skills including patternmaking, hand embroidery, paint and stitch will always be an integral part of her strategies in both the design and visually striking creations.
