Back to work

sketching

 

I had such a wonderful time in Japan over the New Year period.

It was lovely to see my children spending time with their great Grandmother, cousins and extended family. The contrast from my home town in Fukui to here in Brisbane is striking. The snow is now so deep that my family and neighbours cannot leave their house, some cannot open the front door. We were lucky to get to the airport when we did as the snow storm came a few days after we left.
I am now remembering the feelings of being in Japan and experiencing that climate and culture.
I use those memories and feelings to inspire my designs and help me to choose fabrics and colours and silhouettes.
It is great to be back at work with my team.. but sometimes I wish I was still on holiday, watching children run in snow
