“I’m Janet and I am a Basket Maker from Flinders Island. I wasn’t born and bred here so I’m not classed as a local but I have lived here most of my life.
It is a different lifestyle and not everyone is comfortable with the isolation.
You can’t just pop down town and grab the things you need but I believe this has made me very resourceful.
When I’m creating I love to use what’s readily available in my immediate natural environment – leaves, vines, grasses seaweed, beach rope shells etc.”
You can find Janet’s work on Instagram.
