A freelance artist living in Edinburgh. Graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, 2020, with a degree in Textile Design. At university I studied screen printing, knitting on domestic and dubied machines, and hand embroidery for my final year project.

Photography and embroidery are my main loves and I am self-taught in both of these. Currently putting all my efforts into embroidery, I stitch from my little living room any spare chance I get. The inspirations for my embroideries mostly come from things I was surrounded with while growing up in the Northern Irish countryside, i.e. book illustrations, flowers, music, wildlife!

Since graduation I've been completing many commissions and focussing on my technical abilities. The principles of Good Design are important to me, and ethical and sustainable design is the basis for everything I do. For my final year project at university I designed textiles for biodegradable burial-wear using natural dyes and fabrics, which highlighted the slow process of hand embroidery and the need for circular design.
