My artist process includes surface design, painting, sculpting and sewing construction. Creating Avant-Guarde Apparel, Textile Sculptures & Fabric Design with surreal earth imagery. Developing abstracted contemporary fashion collections that relects the fantasy of futurism. Focusing on three concepts of cloth storytelling; animal conservation, ethnobotany and art history folklore of environmental humanities.
Creating TEXTILE STRUCTURES as a surreal interpretation of nature's FLORA & FAUNA. The art forms are made with cloth, paint, dyes, quilting, weaving and embroidery. Vibrant motifs come to life on the body through FASHION DESIGNS & FABRIC PRODUCTION with digital technology and sewing construction.

Incorporating functionalist ways cloth is used as an art object by ancient agriculutral civilizations.

Inspiration for my designs comes from exploring the significance of COSTUME DESIGN, agricultural rituals, textile science and fabric production among ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS. Translating feminist labor function of fashion and farming through sacred symbolism of surface design on the cloth.
