The Big Textile Show in Leicester
My work is textile-based, using mainly African fabrics to create original pictures and fashion accessories.
I have always loved Ethnic Art, especially from Africa and when I discovered African fabrics, I developed a passion. I started to collect African wax print fabric. Their vibrant colours and imaginative patterns are fascinating and inspiring.
Using a technique originally from France, I make what I call "Fabric Pictures" on foam board. I use the simplicity of the lines of my African designs to enhance the original patterns of the African fabrics.
