Natural and imprecise ways of reproducing geometric patterns are at the core of my collection.


Examples from around the world served as inspiration, beginning on an architectural scale with the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, where precise geometric structures are altered by natural disintegration.


Other influences include the hand-painted houses of the Ndebele and traditional Navajo weaving, which demonstrate how freehand techniques affect the repeat of a pattern.


Mixing these concepts with a bold use of colour and exciting textures, the result is an interiors collection that, while contemporary, pays homage to the traditional techniques that inspired it.
