Biography

For my personal practice as an artist and in my work as a fashion lecturer I think about what creativity is and how it can be encouraged, with a focus on sustainable design and analogue techniques. 
I teach a wide range of research, design, development, portfolio building and technical skills for fashion including Gerber pattern cutting and Adobe creative suite software. Whilst studying for my first class honours degree in Fashion Studies at London College of Fashion I also started my own business selling my clothing designs and fine art photography. My work has since been collected and exhibited internationally, including in London and New York, and I have published two books of photography.
