I studied Fashion Textiles Design at Brighton University where I also worked for FAIR, a fair trade shop. There I was given the opportunity to work as a product developer and designer for the fair trade organisations Shika, Jeevika and Silence. I went to work directly with these Women’s co-operatives in India and Tanzania as the production manager. Travel and living in these communities has greatly influenced my work. I currently have a studio here in Bristol where I’m always making and creating! I am a visual artist working through the medium of textiles. My work is energetic, vibrant and textured. I work using layers, which I like to build and develop over time. Embroidery offers me the freedom to express the ideas and images in my mind; the possibilities of work are endless. My works varies from simple line stitch to heavier textured stitch. I like to focus on the quality of the line. I also use other textile media such as screen print, appliqué, felting, embellishment and paint. I’m excited to use fabrics I’ve collected from around the world, recycled saris, silks, indigo-dyed cottons, African kitenge are all used in my work. I also dye and hand paint my own materials. I’m excited by pattern, colour and the story behind the fabric.
