What are the things that have inspired, and continue to inspire, your work?
I adore colour, nature and light, all of these things together are what make up everything I find beautiful. If I can capture any or all of these in my work it makes me very happy.
What is the most memorable (positive) reaction you have had from a customer to your work?
“Thanks so much for bringing such beauty into our lives :)”
When you are not producing new work, what do you like to spend your time doing and why?
Anything that makes me happy or interests me; cycling around on my bike, rollerskating, crocheting, reading, traveling the uk, traveling abroad, baking, cooking, eating, listening to music, going to gigs, watching dramas, films and nature documentaries and taking trips to galleries and museums.
If you were asked to describe the experience of visiting Manchester Craft & Design Centre to someone who has yet to come along, what would you tell them?
MCDC is the perfect spot to buy and commission beautiful and unique things direct from the wonderful makers and designers.
