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.

A few years ago my creative journey veered 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!
