I started my creative journey with the dyeing of textiles in Sierra Leone; At 13 my fascination with African hand dye textiles began. The fact that you could take a piece of plain cloth tie it or wax it, dye it and suddenly have a completely new cloth got my attention, the putting on of patterns with string or wax attracted me. My main fascination was actually with the process of dyeing and changing colors. I realize that with careful planning and re-introduction of new colors you could have at least 4 or 5 invention of the cloth but still understand that you started with a plain cloth that carried the story. A truly alchemical act.
