Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd December 2017

My work is textile-based, using mainly African fabrics to create original pictures and fashion accessories.

I have always loved Ethnic Art, especially from Africa and when I discovered African fabrics, I developed a passion. I started to collect African wax print fabric. Their vibrant colours and imaginative patterns are fascinating and inspiring.

Using a technique originally from France, I make what I call "Fabric Pictures" on foam board. I use the simplicity of the lines of my African designs to enhance the original patterns of the African fabrics.

At the moment, I am concentrating on two main subjects: African people and animals

 

Inspired by my collection of fabrics, I also design colourful fashion accessories: necklaces, earrings, scarves and bags. They give a bright, ethnic touch to outfits.
