About me

I am currently studying BA(Hons) Textiles at Arts University Bournemouth, specialising in digital embroidery and print design for interior application. My past experiences include working for the Arts University Bournemouth, as a Studio Assistant this allowed me to expand my knowledge of technical equipment, in particular the digital embroidery machines, as demonstrating how this operates to others solidified my understanding of the discipline. I am a determined designer and keen learner, always looking for ways in which I can expand my knowledge of textiles. I would describe myself as enthusiastic and proactive when approaching design. I am currently looking for a graduate job/internship where I can continue to develop my skill set.
