I create detailed, hand made textiles using traditional techniques including embroidery, painting, dyeing and fabric manipulation. My work combines contrasting materials such as silks, plastics, and ceramics in harmonious ways to create exciting tactile effects.

This project is about capturing a sense of flow and movement using translucent fabrics applied to the body.
