Countries

I have travelled and continue to travel extensively in connection with my work. I have also made journeys either separately or as side trips with the specific intention of seeking ethnic minorities who still retain traditional clothing and use traditional techniques to make these unique textiles which are part of their ethnic identity. The travel which is shown here is where special visits have been made to locations to see ethnic minorities and their textiles or to view such textiles in galleries or collections.
