INSPIRATION & INFLUENCES

– This is probably my No. 1 place of inspiration. Even though I’ve never been there. I have always loved Asian culture and – Another place that I’ve never been to, but I have a great love of their craft. I love their colours and am fascinated by their Day of the Dead craft. I also admire their embroidered textiles and pottery. – She’s big and she’s the most amazing, multi-talented, creative person. She has so many different ideas. – I love her work. She makes the most beautiful fairy dolls, using a variety of textiles. I’ve bought a few of them. – I love her quilts. Such gorgeous designs. – Great fabric choice that are just my taste. I love every project they make and also that they are creative sisters like us. And, of course, are big influences. We all share a creative journey together.
