I am a textile designer and artist from Zimbabwe with over three decades of design experience, currently residing in Mocksville, NC. I hand paint with many different methods, such as Batik, Shibori, tray dying, salt and watercolor applications. All items start out as a white blank canvas.

– The Batik method is the application of melted wax, which resists dyes, resulting in the motifs and design. The wax is then carefully removed with heat.
– Shibori and Tray Dying is a process of folding, pleating and scrunching during dye applications.
– All of my creations are unique and one of a kind so no two are exactly alike. Any minor imperfections are part of all the handcrafted processes, which indicates the authenticity of this garment.
