I graduated with a Masters in Textiles-Contemporary Dialogues from Swansea Metropolitan University, now Swansea College of Art, Wales, in June 2012. My background is in applied arts; foundation diploma from the University of Gloucestershire, and a BA (Hons) Degree in Surface Pattern Design (Textiles for Interiors), also from Swansea Met (UWTSD).

A ‘bricoleur’…”speaks not only with things…but through the medium of things: giving an account of his personality and life by the choices he makes between the limited possibilities. The ‘bricoleur’ may not ever complete his purpose but he always puts something of himself into it.”
