My mum brought me up on sewing and baking and so it is a practice that has become a part of me. If a couple of days go by without me being able to create I often feel frustrated! Some times I wake up at 5am not able to sleep as I have ideas I need to get out of my head onto paper or material.
BA hons Art, Dartington College of Arts
At university I was fortunate to use the site specific to create performances and instilations. This culminated in a pilgrimage route across spain where I sewed conversations onto my dress along the way.
PGCE Food and Textiles, University of East London
Teaching Food and Textiles in secondary school is a role that I take a lot from. Working with young people allows me to attempt to stay current and upto date with the next generation. Passing on the trades I've learnt is extremely satisfying.
I create most of my work at my home studio in Cumbria listening to Chairlift, Jenny Lewis and Radio 6.
