My 2018 exhibition 'Touch of Japan' was inspired by the beauty & harmony of contemporary Japan & its people. These works are an expression of my appreciation for Japanese textiles & my response to an inspirational journey through Japan in 2017. The works are an assimilation of ideas conveyed through a collage of personal photographs taken in Japan, layered with contemporary, vintage & antique textiles, delicately embellished with metallic thread & other fine objects. In contrast to the urban density, fast pace & bright lights of high tech cities such as Tokyo, the Japanese people maintain a beautiful balance, honouring their traditional cultural practices, spirituality & aesthetics.
