Producing your first collection I would say, more often than not, usually happens naturally or by accident. Mine came to life through dealing with the aftermath of some personal trauma that I experienced. It’s funny how life throws you curveballs when you least expect, want or need them. My coping mechanism was to hunker down and get creative. My textiles teacher at school always said that I produced the best work when I was off sick or near a deadline. Still true to this day.
Out came the paints, sketchbook and pencils and I ended up down a rabbit hole of inspiration and just following my nose. This collection was a mixture of the cellular details that I mention in my Monochrome series but also exploring the use of colour entwined with emotions, feelings, and playfulness. I had no agenda, no vision of how they would look. It was just me, my creativity and I.
