After consistently working on my ‘Energist’ abstract style I started to explore new mediums. Since fabric was part of my early life with my families fashion brand, I felt very comfortable exploring it, and being like most women, I enjoyed dressing up in exciting clothes, so the design came naturally. When I started to apply my style and technique to fabric, it was an instant match. The texture of silk rivaled the best primed canvas and my instantaneous, expressive technique suited the inability to make mistakes.
I’ve evolved my work with fabric in many directions creating free standing silk sculpture, hanging pieces, walk mounted fabric art, site specific installations and one-of a kind wearable art which all have been internationally exhibited and considered pioneering in the field. I now work with fabric in much of a ‘drawing’ mindset (which is the primary category of me as an artist) where I create line-work of motion with the sculpture and reflection of the fabric. At times I leave the fabric unpainted, though I still consider my painted gowns some of the most successful and beautiful creations that I have made ‘till date.
