Experimental Fabric dye Artist, artisan, jewellery maker

Although I studied art briefly in high school, I am a self-taught visual artist and have fallen in love with how unpredictable it can be when working with dyes and acrylics. Each piece I create is a journey of discovery.

I’m always looking past the obvious focusing on the patterns that nature creates around us. I believe we are ‘Intricately tied to nature’

I am intrigued by the light and shade formation from the sand channels, fringe reef shadows, and the way the sun glistens across the water’s surface. This is the inspiration behind what I do. When I create I like to challenge myself to capture the sense of movement and energy. I love to celebrate vibrant colours while ensuring that each piece I make is uniquely imperfect.

It’s always exciting to see the end result.
