at home with Kim Carter

Kim is an amazing mother, textile artist and singer living in Numurkah, Victoria.

“My children and I moved up from Melbourne 10 years ago seeking a fresh start.
What I found about living in a small town is there are so many opportunities, and freedom to live in a way that I had always wanted to.
I come from a background of skilled, independent, craftsmen and women.
Creating things is pretty much as vital to me as breathing is.
I have raised my children to have as many creative experiences as possible in order that they are imaginative, resourceful, independent, problem solvers. As they have grown older, it has been a huge thrill to watch their creative spirits develop” Kim Carter. 

To see Kim’s textile art go to or her current exhibition at MEAC, Mooroopna, Victoria on until November 28th.

One of my favourite things is this needle case that I made out of an old tapestry that my Great Aunty Mavis made. She was a highly skilled dressmaker and upholsterer, adept at every textile art/craft it seemed. The tapestry is a little worse for wear but I love looking at it and being reminded of the precision and quality craftsmanship in her work – it gives me something to aim for.
