Designing & making is not a career or a chore, it is who I am. From deep within me I feel the urge to design & develop ideas, often taking inspiration from the strangest things that perhaps should not be considered artistic at all. Everything in life to me is artistic whether it is rain running down a window or a piece of litter on the floor, I somehow manage to see the beauty in just about anything.
My style of work is continuously growing & developing as is my career trajectory. I completed many years of school where art was always my strong point leading on to an art & design course specialising in textiles. From my art & design Btec I completed a two year Foundation Degree in Costume Construction, where I learnt many valuable techniques such as millinery, tailoring, corsetry, correct sewing skills; Plus I worked on several live briefs. In February 2015 I gained an Upper Second-Class Honours Degree in Applied Arts where I specialised in Textile Illustration. I will endeavour to push forward my designs hopefully building up a list of stockists to distribute to and also take part in crafting events up and down the country.
I work from my home studio in Yorkshire, although I tend to spread through the house and sometimes even outside... woopsie. I not only develop my own work but take custom orders too. The shear enjoyment of completing a project or creating illustrated characters is a real buzz for me. I feel almost like Miss Potter creating my Characters. Together they make quite a bizarre family, but a family non the less.
