Profile

I am currently a second year student studying Textile Design (BA Hons) at Nottingham Trent University. During my time here i have already developed and broadened my knowledge of design, with a passion for mixed media and embroidery. I produce work driven by anything from my environment to working towards live project briefs. This allows me to combine both my own style whilst following briefs and working towards deadlines.
