Gorgeous views today as we drive the Coquihalla Highway of British Columbia, Canada. Amazing to think I am writing business plans while looking at this view.
Nature heavily inspires my work, from natural dyes and fibres, to themes. I also find nature provides the best space to think, work out logistics with patterns and designs, plus how to improve pieces.
Nature, and exploring and playing in natural environments, plays a large part in testing pieces. This is especially true with toques. I take them running, hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking and skiing. I test their warmth, comfort and durability. In this situation, nature inspires the construction.
It is quite interesting how my work and nature are so closely linked. A true source of inspiration.
