For centuries women have used cloth as a tool of comfort and as an expression of beauty within their homes. Creating cloth for warmth, cloth for shelter, our female predecessors embellished these linens with hand stitch using laborious and time consuming techniques thereby enhancing the functional beauty of objects which enveloped and protected their families. Inspired by these women I hope my creations pay tribute to and recognise the devotion expressed in cloth by our female ancestors .

I enjoyed reading the interview very much and can really relate to the not knowing how to paint part, although I draw the templates for my own naive appliqu├ęs these days. But they are not much to see until translated into fabric. Love the smock in the picture!
