About

I've been drawing since I was a little kid, doodling on whatever I could get my hands on, but had no formal training in art until college - where I studied illustration and animation. It was a dream to be an animator or concept designer, but an intro to art course changed that lifelong goal. I found myself tumbling into the world of weaving and dimensional textiles, much like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole.

Textiles was very much a part of my family. My mum sewed and embroidered. Grandmum was a knitter, seamstress, and embroider. Even Great-Grandmum crocheted, embroidered, and sewed. I was the only one in my family that really illustrated and showed a passion towards illustration - which didn't satisfy my desire to express myself. The marriage of textiles and illustration intrigued me, and that's where I am today. I have a profound love for nature, natural materials, lace, and negative space - which I express through these two mediums.

The watercolor paintings I create are inspired by lace and nature (walks through the park, amateur botany and horticulture, hikes, botanical gardens, vintage biological illustrations, my plant collection, ancient textiles, and the like). Organic patterns blend together with antique lace patterns I adore, creating a sort of abstract, organic art. It's like two images in one. The colors attract the eyes and allows the mind to jump from color to color, while the white space between the colors creates an intricate lace pattern.

I finally made the life change of pursuing art with my recent move to Paris, France. Here, I'll be focusing on art and growing myself as an artist. As for which medium I favor more, it's hard to say. Illustration inspires my textiles work, and vice versa. I'll figure out a way to marry the two someday. :)
