My journey began studying textile design in London, this led to working as a textile designer in Africa with women’s groups and street children. I worked in the ‘Jua Kali’ sector, a Kiswahil word for working under the fierce hot sun. Colour was applied freely and patterns were randomly placed across the fabrics and ‘nothing’ was wasted.
Colour, play, pattern making and shape are my inspiration, which I use to create spontaneous compositions for fabric, paintings and illustration. Little is thrown away and I re-use household and industrial waste items, alongside natural objects for collage, printing, painting and image making. I also teach art and run workshops.
I will be exhibiting food art, retro sweets and children’s giclee prints, for the first time at Anybody’s Barn.
Selected past clients include: Liberty’s of London, Hay Festival, BBC, Clerkenwell Design Week and the Forestry Commission.
