Specialisms:

Apparel

Through historical research of my family lineage of Sewist's and Laundresses I came across Late 1800's Washer Women. This morphed into research around the work of Washer Women AKA Laundresses. There were images that were so striking and authentic that It led me to these creations.

Based on my experiences while traveling in CUBA on two different occasions. The colors, the food, the people, the antiquity.

Color is life. Highly influenced by Yayoi Kusama and her artistic works this collection presented color and prints.
