Draco was in the membership exhibition, “Surface Matters”, as part of the Surface Design Association’s International Conference “Off the Grid” held during the summer of 2009. There were two judges for this exhibition, Jennifer Angus, Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who has exhibited her work internationally and has been the recipient of numerous awards, and Alice Kettle, a contemporary textile and fiber artist based in the United Kingdom, who is also a Research Associate at Manchester Metropolitan University and Honorary Fellow at the University of Winchester.

- After many years of experimentation with different techniques using rope, thread and fabric, I now work in a medium which perfectly suits my concept of sensuality and my ideas on the mystery of life as seen from a completely female angle. Working with textiles is sensual in its own right, the fabrics are pliable according to their many different textures, and a delight to the eye. My work mainly explores sex and reproduction, which might fairly be called the major obsession of all living creatures on earth, and I include the intangible concept of love, the principal obsession of human beings.
