I have been involved in creative fields all my life. I would consider my work up to this point to be leaning towards a feminine craft based-agenda as I really enjoy embroidery, I have had a constant interest in fashion, photography and surface pattern design, although my work is black and white drawing at the moment it still includes all these elements.
