Having lived in many places around the world, from the Middle East, to Europe, to North America, I am often struck at the similarities that unite us – as people, as cultures – and yet, at the small differences that make “the spice of Life”. Urban scapes are such a brilliant reflection of culture, in that everything combines: History mixes with contemporary culture, mixes with a cross-section of people; and rich colours, street scents and flavours are woven in. Love them or not, these create a rich woven textile that tells the story of people in a place.

‘Travels’ looks at the urban fabric of various cities I have fallen in love with, and is my celebration of world colour, pattern, and texture, mixed with human.
