I use variety of techniques in my dyeing projects, experimenting with mordants, dyes and plants to achieve new effects. 
My collection reflects local flora and some exotic plants.
Each piece is unique as unique every leave and every flower. 
It is a reminder of a season, place where flora grew up and precious moments of being.
