It is difficult to pinpoint a start date for my creative practice as i have been a maker for as long as I can remember. My background is in textiles with a strong interest in texture, materials, colour and form. The study and practice of Art in the Community for my BA opened my horizons to different materials and skill set, including collage and sculpture. Later the collages became more mosaic based. I further extended my skills base and interest in materials in my research journey for my MA.
