Soldiers Hill Artist Collective - SHAC
Maria Cook is a Ballarat textile artist whose work examines textile traditions, translating the traditional into contemporary textiles with stitch. More recently working with discarded materials, she layers and patches fragments together, combining them with machine and hand stitch - a slow and thoughtful creative process. Regularly showing in group and solo exhibitions and juried into international shows, her work is held in private collections both in Australia and overseas. Maria teaches locally and takes specialised workshops on a regular basis.
