ABOUT

Art and design is a passion of mine and has been all my adult life. I love being creative in everything I do. I am an enthusiastic individual, with a thirst for knowledge. i have worked hard to get to where i am and will continue to do so. My design career started on a Foundation for Art and Design course at Batley school of Art and Design. After a Year on Foundation I found myself applying to The University of Huddersfield where I was accepted onto The Surface Design for Fashion and Interiors course, this fed my passion to become a designer and image-maker. Today I like to create my own designs and learn more about my personal design style.  
 
Inbetween my second and final year at university i undertook a placement year.
my year consisted of six different placements:
 
-Two weeks at Thornback and Peel as a Studio Assistant
