What is the most inspiring place or exhibition you’ve been to in London?
The natural history museum, it is full of wonderful and obscure colour combinations, textures, sculptures, shapes and sizes, all from a range of natural sources many that were once living.
Describe an average day in the studio.
An average day in the studio depends on what part of the process I am at. I could be spending the day dyeing yarn or sat at the loom weaving, music playing in the background to keep me motivated.
How does it feel to have your work displayed in not just a shop?
It is very exciting to have my work on display in not just a shop. It is in a great location that will hopefully give a wider audience access to view the work in person.
What sort of a person do you imagine would relate to your work?
Anyone with an interest in colour and contemporary art would enjoy my work, no knowledge of textiles is needed, but those with experience in textiles may have a deeper understanding of the design process.
