Yearning for the flora of home, creating my own paradise after 2.5 years of being away from Southeast Asia.

Coping mechanisms of obsessive gathering, pleating, repetitive hand-work.

Warm weather silhouettes of cabana shirts and summer skirts cut in heavy bouquet tapestries and hand-pleated crinkle silk velvet. melancholic tones, outbursts of red-hot rage and frustration. Trills of hope and optimism.

'Paradiso' is a story of finding solace.
