Textiles have always been a major part of my life. I have travelled far and wide and spent a small fortune in this pursuit. Over the years my printmaking activities have evolved into surface design, screen-printing and block printing on cloth, while still exploring ideas of colour, pattern, design and image. I call these cushion works "Art to Lean On". They are mostly one of a kind, often with themes being followed. I tend to try to let each one lead me to the next. Inspiration come from all aspects of my life - personal philosophy (the big picture, the small picture), walks in nature, travel, generally being part of the world we live in.

I am a dedicated student of Clothology - art and science of cloth.
