* My inspiration comes from the beauty of nature in landscapes, plants and all living things that is a constant teacher for me, displaying all their beautiful colours, forms, texture and shapes, which I express on my Canvas of Hand Painted Silk fabrics.
I create my garments through pattern drafting and draping from my Judy, to make the shapes and forms that transform my Hand Painted silks into a beautiful vibrant and draping garment that is of class and timelessness.
As a professional Textile & Fashion Designer, for over 38 years ,my reward is to see satisfied clients return, adding to their collection and introducing their friends & family to my unique line.
This is what brings me joy and enthusiasm to keep creating
