About

I am a mixed media Artist & Designer Maker currently completing my Masters at The Royal College of Art, London, specialising in Mixed Media Textiles. I make predominantly through the mediums of Drawing, Painting, Embroidery & Sculpture, creating work that exists within the realms of Fine Art & Costume.

My practice explores the interconnectedness of Nature and life, in particular examining the relationship between the human & non-human. I am fascinated by the mysterious, beautiful & sacred complexities of the Universe. My work is an investigation through ancient & contemporary science, mythology, spirituality & philosophy. The works I create are material metaphors & symbols telling the story of human beings reawakening, reuniting with Nature, the environment & ultimately ourselves.
