Toyoko Sugiwaka
Craft | Graphic Design   (NSW)

In 2001 Toyoko received training in felting techniques from internationally renowned South Australian artist, felter and dyer India Flint.

Toyoko discovered her artistic talent as somewhat of a result of misfortune.

“Whilst working in Osaka as a graphic designer, I lost the photograph leased from a famous Japanese photographer whom I really respected. Making an apology for the loss, I created the brass wire object of him with a cat. He seemed to be impressed. I vaguely felt that my work may have touched his heart. This feeling became the basis of my work.”
