I am a textile artist that loves colour and spending time working with beautiful fabrics. My style has evolved from a traditional style to a modern minimalist aesthetic. My creative journey veered a few years ago, when a friend asked me to take an indigo dyeing workshop. This experience changed how I approach my art. I fell in love with the process of Shibori dyeing. There is something magical about unfolding each piece of hand dyed cloth to reveal the amazing colours and patterns that are created. I am completely hooked!
