My collection consists of motifs, patterns and design inspired by selected aspects of Japanese culture and traditions. Inspired by the Joseon period South Korea with a modern Japanese twist. I have created work from the traditional Japanese style, but also put my own twist on it by making it more abstract.

I have experimented using a range of diverse surfaces and techniques such as textiles, digital, and  hand drawn. These are influenced by traditional and non – traditional styles interpreted for a contemporary market place.
