I am a textiles and ceramic designer maker hand making singular or small collections. I have an intense addiction for resplendent colour, texture, layers and surface pattern which is inspired by my personal collections of ephemera. I am an up cycler and use my collected ephemera and reclaimed textiles, intuitively and emotionally responding to the memories they hold and their materiality. The materials become repositioned and evoke journals of narratives, memories and nostalgia as well as making a statement about environmental, political and social concern in a consumer driven society. I aim to inspire and encourage others through holistic approach workshops reusing materials, to explore their own creative potential and in doing so raise self esteem and self image.
