About me

I am a recent graduate from Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts London with BA (Hons) Textile Design, specialising in stitch, mixed and media textile. My work strongly lies on discovering unique materials and unconventional techniques in refined and sleek forms. I work closely with intricate texture while experimenting with sculptural form, adapting and modernising traditional fabric textiles techniques. Through my discipline I explored my creativity in different fields of interest where I found myself drawn to textiles and jewellery design in fashion. My profession and experiences also expands to creative and visual direction where interested in visual merchandising and creative editorial work. Aside from my creative practices, I developed great administrative skills and understanding in the industry from experiences. I am detailed orientated, highly organised and excellent in time management, which has allowed me to complete tasks with tight deadlines.
