Aly De Groot is an increasingly celebrated contemporary fibre artist from Northern Australia, winning the prestigious Toga Art Award in 2013 in Darwin, and receiving a highly commended in the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize at South Australia Museum in 2014 for her mermaid woven from salvaged fishing line.

Her first major public sculpture Intertwined was commissioned by the City of Darwin that same year and stands at East Point Nature Reserve, Fannie Bay, Darwin. She is a recipient of a Charles Darwin University Post Graduate Research Scholarship where she is focusing on ecology and basketry.

Featured on ABC’s iView in 2015, Ghost Story: The Art of Aly De Groot, is an evocative and haunting short documentary that creatively depicts de Groot’s multi disciplinary practice with animation and visual metaphors.
