COLOURS OF THE EARTH

TEXTILE CREATIONS

Inspired by the endless beauty of Earth, I create wearable pieces of art on silk.

 

Within the fibres of my textile pieces, there lives the stories of entire communities and the very soul of nature.

 

The colours come from the Earth. Sometimes I find them in a leaf. Or even in fallen bark.  Maybe in a flower, or perhaps within a seed...  

 

My designs are created using a combination of different techniques that I have gathered during my travels around the world. These include natural dyeing, shibori, eco printing, and hand painting. My work evolves as I experiment with new techniques.

 

I love working on pure silk fibres. This soft tactile fabric not only has a great affinity with natural dyes; but also it allows me to be creative without leaving a big impact on our planet. 

 

To achieve the unique hues, I only work with natural dyes, as I believe they are the only ones that can capture the true colours of nature.

 

Natural dyes are a whole world of infinite possibilities that helps us maintain our bonds with nature, and through my textile designs I’m contributing to this unique connection.
