I'm a woven texiles Designer from the Isle of Man. I specialised into woven textiles in my 2nd year, studying Textiles: Innovation and Design at Loughborough University. I completed a year out in the creative industry between my 2nd and 3rd year. My placements included: Handweavers Studio and Gallery, Claire Christian Couture, The Workbench London. I have now finished my final year at University and I'm ready to make my way into the creative industry. Growing up on the Isle of Man has given me inspiration throughout my development as a designer. Through the new opportunities and experiences offered by University, I have been able to explore a broad range of new processes and materials in my work, as demonstrated with my website. I enjoy pushing the boundaries of my knowledge as I explore construction methods of woven fabric. Through the growth of my understanding I am able to create new work and ideas within my practice. Having the freedom to use many different fibres together inspires me to design new textures and visually interesting pieces.Locked Pro Plan feature
