I am a photographer and digital artist, my canvas is a computer screen, my brushes are digital. I design fashion fabrics for clothing and accessories as well as fabrics for use in the home in soft furnishings, table linen and more.
In addition I create photographic and hand made greeting cards, gift wrap and small gifts.
Many of my creations start with a photograph, some are manipulated, re-colored and layered to produce new images. Other designs are created using photoshop tools, drawing shapes and painting on a blank screen.
I am a mathematician by education and after working in banking for a few years, I moved to London to run a fashion business "Bellezza" designing bespoke ladies' evening wear & children's fashion clothing. Inspiration for the garments always came from rich colors and prints on luxurious fabrics. I prefer to work with natural fabrics particularly cotton & silk.
"I am inspired by color & all that is beautiful.
Photography is how I capture the beauty that surrounds us.
In the digital darkroom is where I express myself."
