Mackay-based textile and fibre artist, Tracey Robb is a self-professed sufferer of OCD - obsessive crochet disorder! Tracey works from her home studio in Mackay where she produces decorative and functional artworks and clothing for the Artist Collective Canelands as well as producing artworks for exhibitions and commissions. Tracey’s inspiration comes from her love of nature, particularly the flora and fauna of tropical Queensland with an emphasis on free-form crochet using unconventional interpretations of traditional techniques and materials. Experimentation features heavily in Tracey’s work requiring her to create bespoke jigs and tools to try out new ideas. In keeping with Tracey’s philosophy of minimising her impact on the environment, she uses many natural and upcycled products and found objects in her work. Tracey loves to share her knowledge and skills and is a patient and encouraging teacher who runs workshops including beginners to advanced sewing, beginners to advanced crochet and repurposing preloved items and found objects using many techniques including crochet, free-form hand-embroidery, weaving, knotwork and sewing.
