Currently a graduate from Ravensbourne University, I’m a keen fashion designer interested largely in knitwear & textile exploration; tailoring & pattern cutting and sustainable practices. I’m a punctual, hard-working person who works well under pressure to develop my work and concepts to the best of my creative abilities. I enjoy using Illustrator, Procreate and Photoshop to design for my projects and have recently been improving my hands-on skills with domestic and industrial knit and textiles. I have past experience as a freelance artist and graphic designer for independent online apparel stores and currently work as a freelance knitwear designer for brands.
