from 2013-2015 I studied textiles at Open College of the Arts, UK via distance learning. I live in Sydney, Australia, though travel regularly for work and leisure so can be found in Melbourne & Auckland too. I didn’t complete the course but hope to re-enrol again after more short courses and personal study at home this year (2015). this site was originally for my OCA studies, but will become more of a general site including textiles, drawing and sketchbook course work as I practice these skills
