Perčan Pavla

Perčan Pavla



Pavla continues to work on tapestries, although she can’t see so well in the evenings any more. Most of this work she gives away, to people who appreciate it. On her visit to Slovenia she collected a lot of this material. She also likes religious themes. Among her favourites is Madonna with child, and she has made four tapestries of the Last Supper.

Pavla Perčan was born in Šmartno near Cerklje. She arrived in Australia in 1958. She had always liked handicrafts, but since coming in Australia, in fact two years after her arrival, the tapestry work has become her passion. She mostly choses designs with Slovenian landscapes, which are a constant reminder of the beautiful Slovenian countryside.
