introduction

Many of my lecturers have labelled my sense of creativity to be quirky I like to receive good feedback from the audience and make something fascinating. Always thinking out of the box there is no limit to my thinking I am willing to stop at nothing! no matter how impossible the idea is I blossom and keep developing for the better. we have come so far as individuals there has to be more to what we see and make today. My use of silicone is being enhanced by 3D printing I like taking a revolutionary approach to my work just like another of my idols Nikola Tesla. Exploring the unknown and making the fantasy visible to the eye is what I do.

Currently I am a creative and creativity comes in different forms to list myself as a person is very hard. I am opened minded and think “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” I like to refer myself as an artist with a profound admiration for fashion design. Art and textiles have led me to this path at an early age I have a wide range of skills apart from indulging in pattern cutting and sewing I incorporate creativity in everyday life. The person that has inspired me during this exploration of life as a fashion designer is Yves Saint Laurent the man himself, finding an old looking book in the library called Dior by Dior biography of the fascinating insight into the world of haute couture had a great impact on my attitude to strive and keep making wonderful things with or without an audience this is what keeps me upbeat in life. I dream of working for a couture house even though I missed the best years in the making of fashion, I wish I could travel back in time and see it all happen (maybe my next invention will be a time machine!)
