I am passionate about creativity in the commercial environment and intellectually stimulated by new developments in all areas of Fashion, Design, Interiors, Branding and Marketing, continually seeking to identify trends for commercial advantage.
As an artist I have always been fascinated by the exciting juxtapositions, colour harmonies and aged patinas that the randomness of urban decay throws-up. I explore and harness photography, graphics, surface design, print and fabrics creating meaningful and relevant fashion collections. Breathing new life into the discarded and the mundane elevating them to the desirable.
