I am currently in my 2nd year studying BA Fashion Communication at Northumbria University. The course has enabled me to explore the communication of fashion through images, experiences, film and the written word.
I am a quick thinker and have the ability to develop creative ideas individually or as part of a team.
Where am I now?

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN: A CONVERSATION BETWEEN SARAH BURTON & SARAH MOWER JANUARY 2019
I was selected to be one of five students to represent Manchester School of Art, to join a small group of 'emerging talent' from the top fashion universities, for the opening of the Alexander McQueen Flagship Store Exhibition.
I attended an intimate meeting and conversation between the creative director of Alexander McQueen, and world renowned Vogue critic. During the intimate talk between the creative director Sarah Burton and Vogue journalist Sarah Mower, we were personally walked through the intricate creative process from research to finished garments. It was a truly unforgettable experience which focused on my desire to work within a similar creative dynamic for a high-fashion brand.
Read about the experience on Vogue:
'Deep research is central to Burton’s process, as it was to McQueen’s, so it makes sense that rather than follow the trend for in-store cafes, the top floor is home to a community-building experiential space intended to foster emerging talent through programs for students throughout England.'
SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT CREATION
I used platforms such as Instagram to interact and have my work seen by influential fashion brands and figures such as Sarah Mower, Pat McGrath, Amanda Steele, and Gigi Hadid
My illustration was also featured on the FYI television network Instagram account to advertise KhloeÌ Kardashian's talk show Kocktails with Khloe.
FREELANCE PORTRAIT ARTIST 2016-PRESENT
For several years, I have used my artistic skills to create a online buisness selling custom portraiture. The successful nature of this small business became my part-time job through education and university.
As shown on my business website, I have received many recommendations from clientele, meaning the majority of my business has formed from genuine word-of-mouth references.
