I have been intrigued by the endless possibilities of exploring and transforming textiles into fascinating creations, manifesting in the form of garments and wall hangings. Elements of texture, embellishment, surface techniques, depth, movement, pattern, colour and inner visions have defined my path. I strive to project the joyful beauty of nature and the elements that uplift the human spirit. If I had one goal for my work, it would be to make someone, just for a moment, forget their troubles and feel a sense of delight and happiness.
