BIO

I believe Fashion is the ultimate communication and artistic expression. A person's individual style flows from their character. Fashion takes our bodies and packages them so they reflect how our minds work. I am a forward-thinking and highly creative Fashion, Textiles and Accessories graduate from De Montfort University. The thing that I love about fashion and textiles is how it can express you as a person. The colours you choose, the styles, placement of your art work, they all combine to give you an overall style that is unique to you.

I enjoy experimenting with fashion, seeing what works and what does not, and working out why it doesn’t work. I had some major fashion disasters, but have learnt from them and so have developed my own sense of style. I have developed my skills in various design specialism’s especially print and garment development and pattern making, whilst simultaneously becoming proficient in the use of computer based design software such as CAD and Adobe Photoshop to create sophisticated Digital and screen print designs. I have been able to practice hand sketching and explore a diversity of sketching techniques that have helped to improve my hand sketches and significantly increased my attention to detail. My work mostly is based around cultural architectural detail or botanical flowers. I enjoy exploring and pushing at this blended line, where communication, styles, culture and technique all mix.
