Can you tell us about your work, when did you start creating?

 

Ive always been creating, as long as I can remember… I did a design degree about 20 years ago, did lots of design related jobs interior design, product design, art teacher to name a few! I decided to give up my full time job 5 years ago to focus solely on my own art career-although daunting it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made!!!

 

How would you describe your home decor style?

Where do you create most of your work, what is your space like? 

 

I’m really lucky, I have a creative space in my house, and I also have a space in a shared studio space that house lots of creatives, so I normally have something on the go at home and something going on in my studio space:)
