APPROACH AND INSPIRATION
Inspired by shapes (i.e. Fibonacci sequence) and textures in nature especially plant, flower and leaf forms.
Art and creativity have been central to my life as a designer and producer of clothes hand-embellished with knitting, crochet, embroidery and beading. Graduated from the Grafton Academy Dublin and Fashion Institute of Technology New York. Had my own wholesale and export business as well as two retail outlets.
While painting and drawing has always been part of my life, it is now my main focus now.
