My work in textile art is informed by my emotions, which are expressed by colours and textures. I am fascinated by hand and machine free embroidery, beautiful silk and fashion fabrics. My works are either large-scale, expressing my passion with bright colours, or small, showing the sensitive side of my nature. These two types of work reflect the two contrasting aspects of my personality.
