By combining skills fine-tuned over a number of years a bespoke garment can be created for you. The wearable art displayed here are examples of places and memories very dear to myself.
The background photos in some of the images show my inspiration and that, combined with my love of colour, ensures that the clothing is a
'one off' creation.
