I am a textile artist based in London. 

I studied my first degree at Central St. Martins (Textile design) and went on to do my masters at the Royal College of Art (Knit/Printed textiles). 

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing work or would like a quotation for other work.

Whilst I was studying for my degree I went to India to investigate some of the textile design methods which I have drawn upon and incorporated into a more contemporary style of work. My Indian background and heritage have influenced my work and and I find myself being naturally drawn towards Indian themes such as the fantastic Indian mythology stories and the wonderful array of characters that feature in them.

Since leaving college I have taken part in numerous exhibitions (national and international) where I have shown knitted, printed multi-media, felt, photography and canvas work. 

Alongside exhibiting I was lecturing at East Berkshire College for the past thirteen years as part of the Textile Fashion team.

I have completed many commissions and have taken up numerous artist in residences/ workshops jobs. At present I find work becoming very photographic, especially after my recent travels to Egypt, Rome, Bangkok, Singapore, Cambodia in Summer 2005. Where strangely enough I was drawn towards the Cambodian Wall Carvings at Angokar Wat where my beloved mythological friends adorn the temple walls!
