Fashion design was a great hobby of mine and through the 80’s and 90’s I would use my needlework skills to customise my clothing. I have always enjoyed making my clothes unique to my own style and now use my creative ideas to recycle old clothing, ribbons, threads and beads into textile art design.
In the 90’s I started sketching and designing period-style dresses. I enjoyed period-drama and would sit for many hours designing beautiful dresses. These are the only two sketches I have now; of course I am glad I kept them so I can express how versatile art can be.
