My corsets are steel boned and can transform almost any figure. I manipulate and embellish fabrics to be used in my garments and virtually every piece is a one-off.

Batik is an ancient craft for designing on cloth using wax as a dye-resist. With modern dyes, many unusual effects can be achieved. I like to use the traditional Indonesian batik tools - tjanting, brushes and cotton material which is produced in Java especially for the production of batik. My work is influenced by the colours and textures of the local Highland landscape and I produce wallhangings and framed pictures using a variety of batik techniques.
