I’m a handweaver who experiments and explores. I love the experience of handling beautiful fabric and using texture and colour to create fabric and artwork.
Taking inspiration from drawings, paintings, and photographs with a wide range of subject, I am intrigued to to find ways to interpret them in cloth.
I work with image editing software which instructs a digitally operated part of my handloom. The weaving process is carried out by hand, allowing me to study the fabric as it grows and respond with adjustments in yarn, texture, colour and structure.
Designing jacquard weave uses textile and computer skills acquired over the years. Working in the jacquard medium is a perfect fit for me.
