Im currently studying at Huddersfield University and am approaching my third / sandwich year of my course (Costume Design with Textiles).
I enjoy being creative and can turn my hand to most things, particularly painting, sketching, needlework of all kinds and I take inspiration from many sources. I enjoy listening to music and my tastes vary from heavy rock to musicals and have recently discovered that I quite like opera! I like to read as much as possible and watch films whenever I can.
I have begun to paint, draw and sketch celebrities and am very particular about the way they are painted or drawn to achieve a realistic end result. I am quite happy to draw most people, however I prefer to illustrate the face and neck or upper body.
I enjoy my course and am able to pattern cut and create patterns both on the stand and also flat patterns. I have a flamboyant, individual style with a vivid imagination and am never sure in which direction it will take me. I have created male and female garments and designs for modern and period wear to a high standard. I specialise in embroidery and amable to produce both hand and machine embroidered textiles. My research skills enable me to deconstruct and analyse scripts, so assisting me with obtaining a new concept for a story and am able to illustrate character's designs based on the new take / theme.
