Meet the maker: Mel Telfer

This is the first in a series of posts about the artists and makers on Flinders Island & the Furneaux Group of islands.  Please indulge me as I introduce myself as the first maker!

Firstly, tell us a little about yourself:

My partner grew up on Flinders and always wanted to come home again. When our girls were young we moved here, and it's been fantastic for them to grow up in this incredible community. When I was a child we moved around a fair bit, which I think has contributed to my restless nature. Every few years I seem to move house, change jobs or find another way to shake up my daily life!

When the Swamphen opened in June 2014 I knew I wanted to have an online presence beyond facebook and instagram.  It's only taken three years, but here we are!
