I studied Creative Arts at Bath Spa University (Textiles and Fine Art, BA (Hons) First Class) before completing a Masters Degree in Fashion and Textiles at the same university.
Drawing has always been the starting point for my work, and illustrations of the natural world, plants, flowers and birds, become the inspiration for my textiles and paintings. I am also fascinated by memory and dreams and these are recurring themes within my work.
My purses are made from luxurious velvets and silks, often including vintage buttons, lace and pieces of antique trims and ribbons. I enjoy repurposing something which once would have been discarded and discovering the intrinsic beauty in the old, used and damaged.
