Textiles, both literally and metaphorically, offer uniquely fluid, flexible and infinitely adaptable ways of questioning, examining and solving some of the challenges that face us. This powerful agency is more valuable and vital than ever before as these challenges become increasingly complex.

    As a mature student, I had lots of industry experience before I came to the Royal College of Art. I worked for years in a leather manufacturing company I had set up in Ireland before moving into consultancy work.

    I did both my foundation course and my undergraduate degree at University College Falmouth in Cornwall. My degree was in Textile Design and it was at Falmouth that I started to specialise in Mixed Media, which is what I study at the RCA.
