About me

I am a recent Textiles Graduate from Cardiff Metropolitan University. As a designer I am drawn to a bold and energetic use of colour, pattern and texture. I love to explore the juxtaposition and contrast of geometrics against fluid forms, aiming to produce a modern and youthful appearance. Throughout my work I have experimented with a plethora of materials and techniques, including smart textiles, to ensure a contemporary and forward thinking approach to my practice.
