My passion is making and I love nothing better than to work with my hands and thrive on working outside of my comfort zone experimenting with new ideas. I have an extensive range of practical skills accompanied with hands on experience manipulating a variety of materials such as Jesmonite/Resins/Plaster/Wax/Clay/Wood/Fabric/Metal/Paint/Dyes, making bespoke moulds from Silicone, Alginate and PVC Rubber alongside good working knowledge of Photoshop.

My collection was scouted in my first year exhibition at Chelsea by an InDesign agent. His client list includes Calvin Klein, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Kenneth Cole and Victoria
