‘I am fundamentally concerned with the making of things, the inherent quality of a material, its beauty being revealed without artifice or extraneous decoration. I wish to follow the natural movement or essence of a material and to work with it in a craft based way. By placing a material in relationship with a person and their body in the form of clothing or accessories I am able to explore what these forms mean to me. Fashion is fleeting and ephemeral. I am, instead, seeking out the inherent value contained within a material, object or form and using that to design a garment.’
