I am a materials led textile graduate from Edinburgh College of Art specialising in experimental printed textiles, embroidery and embellishment. My work employs a combination of traditional and alternative print and surface making techniques such as using glitter, latex and special binders, unique handmade embellishments and embroidery. Material-led playing and happy accidents are integral parts to my process in creating exciting tactile surfaces that challenge traditional textile methods I am fascinated by transforming materials so that they become unrecognisable from their original form, especially creating my own composites for exciting and innovative surfaces.

Gathering Dust is inspired by both my collection of objects, ceramics, photographs and trinkets as well as my experiments in colour and materials. Material-led playing and happy accidents are just as important to my process as my collections. The two work hand in hand, driving each other to develop and push my work further. I am challenging traditional textile techniques blending materials to render them unrecognisable. By tangling this content together, I have created a spontaneous, playful fashion and textile collection. My textiles have been designed for fashion with other possibilities being in footwear and accessories.
