Harmonising between Textile Design and Fine Art, my artwork is primarily born from a profound interest and love of Nature. Precision of mark making is key in developing movement and feeling within pieces in order to gain an engaging relationship with an audience. Colours used within my work are often reflective of those living within the natural world, green is often used as a basis to create a calming and cleansing atmosphere, an escape from the technological social environment in which many of us live. Currently studying for a degree in BA Hons Textiles & Surface Design, Art and Design has always been a main focus in my life and has often, I believe, been used in a subconscious effort to identify myself. I enjoy working in a way which requires a lot of time and dedication, using hand rendered techniques to create large scale, detailed designs, I believe by giving so much of myself and pushing boundaries I am able to create pieces which are complete of sensitivity, allowing them to be unique in the sense that they are a genuine representation of my passion for art and design.

Fascinated by the vibrant colours and textures living within the natural world and its inhabitants, my project infuses a range of techniques and materials to create hypnotizing scenes bursting with movement.
