This work reflects the experimental and liberal nature of my work as a designer and maker. My work is created using a mixed media approach to textile design combining a variety of print methods with embroidery techniques, which predominately utilises domestic sewing machines. In order to discuss topics that can often be understood as incongruous - I often begin my collections with a controversial concept that is either personally driven or a current debated topic that concerns a wider societal issue. I believe it is important to keep abreast of contemporary liberal issues to encourage equality alongside diversity. My recent work challenges the status quo of menswear fashion. My work sits within both a gallery and fashion context, areas that I aim to practice within in the near future.
