Meeni is the showcase for work by multidisciplinary artist Madeline Norris.
I am fascinated with past times and in reimagining and reusing items from different eras. My work is focused on the domestic, childhood, the personal and reminiscence. I often work with vintage, antique and reclaimed materials giving new life to the discarded and adding these layers of history to my own work. Much of my work is textile based using hand and machine sewing and embroidery. However, I delight in using a variety of media and explore subjects through paper, collage, drawing and painting. I also make jewellery incorporating my own handmade glass beads.
My art and craftworks are available online via this website, from my Etsy Shop, Folksy Shop, at nationwide art and craft fairs, and through a variety of galleries and arts centres. I also take commissions.
When I get the chance I also like to make music, soundworks (and sometimes dance). I love singing and play a number of instruments including the violin and ukulele.
