I am a Mixed Media Artist & Designer Maker currently working as an Embroidery Designer at the Fashion House Alexander McQueen. I specialise in Drawing, Painting, Textiles & Sculpture, creating work that exists between the realms of Fine Art & Couture.
My personal practice explores the interconnectedness of Nature and Life, I am fascinated by the mysterious, beautiful & sacred complexities of the Universe, ancient & contemporary science, mythology, spirituality & philosophy. The works I create are material metaphors & symbols telling the story of human beings reawakening, reuniting with ‘Nature’ in the broadest meaning of the word.
