‘Leaf Litter’ is a study of the things that go unnoticed, the things underfoot.
Australian eucalypts continually shed leaves creating a beautiful patchwork. If you look carefully there is a pelthora of colours, textures and shapes- the freshly lost, the damaged, the decaying. Only by casting your eyes down and focussing your attention on the details will these wonders triumph.
Sarah Walker is a textile artist from rural Western Australia.

For Sarah, knitting has become a medium for expressing creativity. She enjoys solving problems, breaking a few of those knitting rules and producing the unexpected.
