About me

Naturally creative and highly competitive, with a sharp mind quick to listen, learn and apply new skills. An adventurer who appreciates difference and culture, exploring wherever possible via travel and design. A natural story teller who highly values the finer details, and an innate ability to convey concepts via styling. Driven in my creative calling I am always open to a challenge. A lover of texture and inspector of design, my inquisitive nature and desire for knowledge have proven profitable in both professional and developmental practice. A grounded individual with a transparent character who thrives in positive, creative and pressured environments.

Education

2017

BA (Hons) Textile Design

Hereford College of Art

Oct 2016 - Jul 2017
  • Hereford, United Kingdom
  • Having had an eight year gap working various freelance and part time roles, my professional skills had inevitably grown across a broad spectrum of fields, providing the skills listed above. However a passion for creating and desire to focus my career led to the study of textile design, on a top-up year where I could expand on previous knowledge. The year was undoubtably challenging, however an internship was awarded and a 2:1 achieved despite majoring in a complex technique I had no prior knowledge or training in; manual weaving. My final collection drew on the strengths of old (print design) and new practice, weave.
