Arts & Crafts have always
been a key part of my life
My creativity stems from my Grandmas who are very talented artists and seamstresses. As a child, I spent a lot of time with them and loved to get creative in any way that I could. From potato printing, making collages, drawing and painting to sewing. My older brother has also inspired me greatly with his passion for graphic design, art, style and music.
I always thrived in my school Art lessons and went on to study Fine Art at GCSE and A-Level, as well as Textiles. I usually had a pen or pencil in-hand, doodling away on my schoolwork, any paper I could find... and lots of trainers!
I also had the positive experience of co-running a clothing business for a few years. I designed, dyed and printed t-shirts, hoodies, hats and bags using eco-friendly dyes and inks.
More recently, my favourite creative past-time has been collecting flowers out of my garden, drying and pressing them then turning them into art pieces. I also enjoy experimenting with resin and mixed media.
