Face Embroidery

I started this project on Christmas Day 2017. It was the end of a bit of a tragic year for my family, so this project was to avoid a bit of a sad Christmas Day. This embroidery was inspired by a charcoal portrait drawing of my dad. My dad didn’t actually like the drawing, he…

C x L Collaboration

It’s been a couple of weeks since my collaboration with Chloe. This collaboration came about due to Chloe and I being a little bored during this lockdown period. Chloe, the embroidery genius, started an amazing Instagram Live series on basic embroidery stitches. A lot of people joined her sessions, but we were discussing how she…

Interview Help

It has definitely been a while since all of my university admissions interviews. In fact it has been nearly three years. However, during my boredom of this lockdown, I found all of my interview prep notes and thought it would help another creative student out. Some of these interview styles must have changed in the…

Quarantine Sanity

I am sure many of you are losing it a little during Quarantine. I definitely am at the moment. A little, or rather a big, Sunday breakdown has led me to write this blog post, so here I am, telling others about my experience. From being independent as a university student to being back home…

Adapting your Workspace

Working from home in this ‘new normal‘ is definitely taking some getting use to. I have found the best way to adapt and feel a little more at home, is to make a more distinguished workplace for me. I am sure you know by now that I am a textiles student and for us, studio…

Life Drawing

Before, the thought of life drawing always used to make me giggle. The immature 16-year-old me would have thought to never even go to a class let alone do a whole A-Level project on it. My first encounter with life drawing was when I was 17. As part of my portfolios for my university visits,…

I’m Back!

Firstly, I have to say how sorry I am for abandoning this blog for nearly a whole year. I can truly say that the last year has been one of the busiest in my short 18 years on the planet. The combination of A-levels and university visits/interviews made sure of my lack of time to…

Travel Journalling: Thoughts?

So I have to say that keeping a travel journal has been harder than expected. Its all very good at the beginning saying that you will draw everyday and keep ticket stubs but it is so difficult! The sketchbook I used was the Moleskin Large Watercolour Sketchbook. As expected of Moleskin the quality of the…

1st Year Anniversary!

Wow, I can’t believe that it’s been a year since I started this blog! This website has been a great opportunity to display my work alongside helping me reflect on past projects. This blog was originally a present from my brother. He thought that it would be a great start on creating a digital portfolio…

Loughborough University

I wasn’t so keen on Loughborough University. It has a very sporty atmosphere which does not suit me at all (if you ever met me, you would understand this). Course: This is a four-year course instead of the usual three as it has a sandwich year in Year 3 The university streamline you into print, weaving,…

Artwork for a Nursery

I never knew that creating artwork for a nursery would be so hard. This was my first gift (or I see it more as a commission), that I have made for a family member. When my cousin announced her pregnancy, I knew I wanted to create some artwork for her nursery. My brief for the…
