I love the colours in this block. Most of these fabrics are hand dyed by myself. Most of them are silk. What a pleasure to stitch through silk! Also, a lot of the threads and ribbons are hand dyed by myself. It gives me a real sense of satisfaction to have used my lovely unique materials.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
