Weaving is a method of textile production using two distinct sets of yarn or threads interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. The method in which the threads are interwoven affects the characteristics of the cloth. The majority of woven products are created with either a plain, satin or twill weave. These weave methods produce plain, decorative or artistic design patterns.

Featured in various magazines and exhibited around Sydney, her designs reflect cultural movements or global happenings. ‘Striations’, one of her latest works, resembles a geographical landscape. Through colour and texture, Sky aims to celebrates our imperfections, faults and differing physical appearances as a protest against a world which favours perfection.
