About me

Kay Lawrence AM is Emeritus Professor at the University of South Australia where she had a distinguished career as an educator in the visual arts, becoming the first woman appointed to head the South Australian School of Art in 2002. She has an international profile as a tapestry weaver and her work is held in many public collections in Australia and overseas.

Her art practice ranges across woven tapestry to installation and performance works using humble domestic materials like buttons and string to explore the material and immaterial resonances of human life. She has completed a number of major commissions for public spaces and was made a member of the Order of Australia in 1989 for service to the arts as designer of the Parliament House Embroidery in 1988.
