About me

​A highly creative, enthusiastic colourful textile design graduate specialising in Embroidery. Combining a love for music, global culture and visions of our natural world. Materials are unapologetic and luxurious using maxamalist approaches exploring a range of techniques from all textile disciplines. Before university I travelled across the world and fell in love with our planet and its people. From the tropical city of Rio De Janiero, remote coast lines of Western Australia to the hustle bustle of Mumbai, I was experiencing raw life whether it be vibrant cultures or scenic nature. The landscapes North India inspired me to return home and study textile design, high altitude Himalayan mountain ranges, colourful remote landscapes and the eccentric dressed people of Ladakh inspired me follow my dream.
