I am a textiles desiner specialising in print. My work draws inspiration from the past, drawing on traditional decorative imagery and combining it with a modern, urban twist. I am passionate about working within the community and its individual members, encouraging confidence in people to design and create. I think art can be used as a tool to encourage people to be productive and to think outside the box. Through the use of workshops and community projects people can be given alternatives and avenues that they might not have otherwise considered.
