Pi Williams is an emerging artist with a background in Fine Arts and has worked across a variety of disciplines including watercolour, printmaking and acrylics. She now prefers to create pieces predominately with yarn and wool and is largely self taught in this medium. Pi strives to explore the boundaries of the technique and, by combining the textural wool with vivid thread, negative space and mixed media materials, she creates expressive & distinct, almost sculptural pieces.
Her creative process involves gathering inspiration from her environment before researching and testing ideas through painting. She selects and experiments with various materials before bringing all these elements together in her textile pieces. Pi’s larger works reflect her interest in the natural world around her and the beauty to be found in the minuscule. They set forth intricate leaf patterns, detailed rock pools and each delicate petal on a flower like visual descriptions of the microcosms found in the Australian landscape. With her abstract pieces, she lets herself be guided mainly by intuition, allowing a unique showcase of movement and harmonious colour to evolve naturally
Pi is currently influenced by her love of Australian native botanicals, her Thai/Chinese culture and the fresh atmosphere of coastal living.
