Cherilyn is a practising mixed media artist and teacher who continues to explore surface, pushing the boundaries of material and techniques to create complex surfaces.

The two artists are celebrating 25 years of collaboration within their gallery at The Festival this year, and their mutual love of surface design and embroidery will form the basis of their illustrated talk.
