I have always had an overactive imagination so I find that my personal escape is found in the imaginings of my mind. I often find myself daydreaming, conjuring stories about alternate universes where the impossible becomes possible. My fascination with super heroes and mythology allows for worlds where people are capable of super human powers.
My collection is thus inspired by an escape to an alternate universe where a segment of society is endowed with extraordinary capabilities, as a result of a genetic mutation. It explores the concept of illusion as a tool that is used by these super beings to protect the world in which they live in, as well as to evade danger. As a result I have worked with creating illusions through print and fabric, allowing the viewer of the collection an opportunity to escape from reality into this fantasy.
