About Us

Fibre Artist 

Di was born is Sydney, Australia many moons ago.  Di comes from a family of artists, her father a talented artist, her mother a seamstress, and her grandmother a wedding dress maker. Growing up Di was surrounded by people making various things with all kinds of mediums. Di first started selling her art at the Byron Bay markets in1986.  Moving to London in the late 80s Di continued her love of fabric, and fibre, and selling items at local markets.

After moving to Tokyo, Japan in 1990 Di soon established herself with a business in vintage Japanese fabrics.  Di’s classes were waitlisted for many years, where she taught her art of creating wall art, quilts, and handbags from vintage kimonos, yukatas and obis.

While living in Tokyo for 16 yrs Di studied needle felting as a hobby with some of Japanese finest teachers. Felted fibres became a passion and continued when she moved to Singapore where her felted art began to take form.

Now living in Brisbane, Australia Di runs Wild Woolly Heads where she does commission work for clients.  Di’s inspiration comes from her love of animals, the details in Japanese fabric and art, the lushness of Singapore, and her tropical Queensland garden.

In her busy studio Di spend most days there with her sister Annette, who is also a talented artist and the silent partner that keeps Wild Woolly Heads humming again. They brain storm and bounce ideas off each other, while their dogs Birdie and Holly sleep under the tables.
