About me

I am first and foremost a multi-disciplinary visual artist and designer specializing in knitted textiles, however consider myself a versatile and adaptable character, and thrive on learning new skills. In 2015 I graduated with a 1st class honours from BA Textile Design at Central Saint Martins, after which I spent a year and a half working as a freelance designer and knitter before moving to Mexico to work with and learn from local artisans and business entrepreneurs, as well as to complete a residency at the award winning Arquetopia foundation for which I was selected. I am now based back in London, the city in which I was born and raised.
