Neroli Henderson is an internationally exhibiting artist from St Kilda, Australia and credits her BERNINA 750QE for making much of her recent work possible. Neroli's art generally focuses on the human condition, particularly our longing, wanting, innermost fears and disconnectedness from society. It explores the lack of total control we often have in our own fate while attempting to transform these feelings into a moment of time that encapsulates beauty.
A graphic designer and art director until a spinal fracture necessitated a career change Neroli found her love of textile art and stitching after attending an AQC in 2006 when she realised you could ‘draw’ with the sewing machine and fuse fabrics together.
Neroli’s works are often highly detailed, textural mixed media pieces that demand a lot from her sewing machine as it needs to be able to sew a perfect stitch through many layers and on unusual substrates and painted surfaces. The precision and illustrative nature of many of her works shows her design background.
Neroli loves to share her take on modern techniques with others through the many magazine articles she’s authored, teaching workshops and in online tutorials, she is also the group owner of the Facebook Textile Arts group with over 7,000 members and the mission statement: To elevate textile fine art beyond the craft arena into the realm of conventional galleries.
