I think of my work as organic; inspired by nature and yet layered with many overlapping narratives and influences. I love when a piece evolves through its construction; the way the process of realising a sketch can change my ideas in unexpected ways. Technique, construction, and wearability is very important to me, I want to make pieces that will delight and please the wearer.
