Being creative is a natural way of living for Trudy who had a business involving natural fibres and textiles for 25 years. During this time she completed a BA (Art) then a Dip.Ed and enjoys teaching and interacting with students of all ages.
She now works on small sculptures in ceramic, glass and mixed media and runs workshops from her Swan Valley studio several times a year.
Women and balance have been a recurring theme in her work which includes the flora and fauna of WA. Living amongst the banksias provides the inspiration for the birds featured in her work.
