About Catherine Summers


Catherine Summers hails from the rugged landscapes of the Flinders Ranges. Her artistic journey is a testament to her ingenuity and unwavering passion for creative expression.

Growing up in this captivating environment, Catherine's high school years were marked by unique circumstances. Her art lessons were conducted through correspondence, and the essential supplies for her creative endeavours arrived in a box, a treasured memento she still keeps to this day.

Upon settling in Cleve, she became an integral part of the Quilters group, a commitment that spanned an impressive 25 years. Catherine's artistry underwent a remarkable transformation during this period, evolving from traditional quilting to more innovative textile art quilts. Eventually, her talents extended into the realm of textiles and mixed media. Her journey as an artist is a testament to her ability to adapt and embrace new forms of creative expression.

For Catherine, the act of creation is a lifeline, an addiction that fuels her artistic spirit. Drawing, stitching, painting, and sewing are all part of her creative repertoire, each skill contributing to the rich tapestry of her artistic work. Drawing inspiration from her extensive skill set, she weaves together fabrics and papers from her collection to craft small artworks and journals, each one bearing the mark of her unique vision and craftsmanship.

With a recent move to the Barossa Valley, Catherine's artistic horizons have expanded even further. New opportunities have blossomed, allowing her to share her art with a broader audience and embark on a new endeavour—a small creative business known as Fibre Bird Studio. This venture serves as a platform for her to showcase her exceptional talent and engage with art enthusiasts, offering them a glimpse into the remarkable world of Catherine and her creative journey.
