About

I’m a Third year Contemporary Textiles product student, studying at Cleveland College of Art and Design, Hartlepool.
I create unique, handmade designs and products using print, embroidery and embellishment.
My work is inspired by everything around me, I find I gain a lot inspiration from natural forms as you will see in my posts.

I am currently working on my dissertation, researching consumerism and interior design specifically looking at wallpaper and how our personal style choices have changed over the past 100 years.
I am also currently in the research stage of my minor project, I am looking at the ‘Save the bees’ campaign and how this will effect us and our environment.
