How it all started: my Story
Hosting guests, I went on many trips to textile weaving plants and discovered my love of this wonderful material and the patterns and colours of Sri Lanka. Yet I could not shake the feeling that many patterns were or looked the same, which meant that the materials often lacked a unique quality. Something new was needed, something special.
An idea formulated in my mind at that time that I continue to put in practice and evolve today with commitment and passion. In different ways, time and again.
I rediscover Sri Lanka anew every time I travel there, with my camera and my eyes wide open. I want to capture everything, eternalise every moment, and soak up the unadulterated atmosphere of this place. This is where art lives and breathes. What drives and inspires me is appreciating what appears to be the little things in our world. A symbiosis of my passion for photography and design, which I use to create patterns that are wholly unique, both in how they are created and the effect they have.
I capture details that represent the world for me with a click of the camera and turn these into so much more. My photos turn into designs.
Patterns based on real images. Each and every client can be sure of one thing: this plant, this cloth, this pattern can be found somewhere in the real world.
My many years of experience in the field of photography enable me to now, when taking these photos, to focus on what is important.
How does the motif need to be photographed for the design to work later on? Which angle, which perspective do I need to consider, and which effect should the finished pattern have?
I feel, for the first time, a deep affiliation with my work – with what I do. My designs tell true stories of our world, focus a person’s attention on valuable details that want to be noticed.
My business allows me to be myself.
With all my creativity and all my feelings that come to the fore in my patterns.
