"Home" - Solo Exhibition

I was commissioned by the Creative Youth Network to create work for a solo exhibition in 2019. I used a variety of techniques, such as illustration, embroidery, appliqué and cyanotypes, as well as digitally printing patterns onto fabric. All the art works and patterns I created were inspired by patterns found in the old photographs of my family, and told the story of my childhood. .

I was commissioned by Rising Arts Agency to create two illustrations for their logo. My illustrations were colourful and playful, and each told a story about connecting to the natural world.
