Lives and works in Gwynedd

Bio: 'We are living in interesting times. Digital culture prevails in many aspects of our life; not only from a social and political viewpoint, these contemporary technologies underpin our global monetary and production systems. This new frontier of human existence is taking us to unprecedented ways of being. The disembodiment associated with these new dimensions has a spiritual element, and a certain psychedelic flavour. I graduated in July of this year from the BA Fine Art course at Coleg Menai with a first class degree, following a short suspension of my studies to have my son in 2015. My work has always been predominantly textiles based. Previously making design based work, my creativity has evolved into more thoughtful pieces which still maintain my love for colour, pattern and handmade production.
