Silk-painting with gutta and other resists, using acid dyes. Subject matter is often derived from drawings of natural subjects, such as feathers, leaves, animals or animal markings and the patterns and movement of water. An interest in mythology and folklore also surfaces in more narrative pieces of work, such as a recent series entitled "Magic Cauldron" and the "Creation Myth" scarves. Recent work has broadened to include a large proportion of work with wax and using various shibori techniques, particularly tying and twisting.
