What is it that you do?

I'm an Illustrator that dabbles in a bit of everything including ceramics and embroidery.

Describe your creative process:

I'm very inspired by my friends and a lot of them have their own labels and shops so I'll be asked to do something design based for them and then other works and ideas grow, I work best from suggestion!

How do you define beauty?

That's a big one! I guess something or someone or somewhere that is interesting and odd.

What are you listening to at the moment?

I've found this really great album called Plantasia by Mort Garson that was made to play to your house plants, so I have been listening to that hoping to encourage my plants to grow.

What do you do to relax?

Watch forensic files and embroider in bed.

What is the last book that you read?

'What House Plant Is That'. I'm trying to figure out what my house plants are.
