I studied a BA textiles for Fashion and Interiors at Bath Spa University and graduated in 2011. My work foccusses on exploring various materials and fabrics and I experiment with surface and texture. I take inspiration from different surfaces which are eroding, peeling, damaged and layered. I use photography and different Medias to show my interpretation of the image taken. I especially enjoy working from cracked graffiti and derelict buildings.
