My collections have been inspired by many different themes such as fossil drawings by Ernst Haeckel, natural floral forms and garden architecture. I also specialise in manipulating fabric and creating unusual textures to form my headpieces.

I use traditional materials such as sinamay, crin and felt, and also source silks, ribbons, buttons, feathers and anything of interest from vintage clothes shops and markets in London and surrounding area.
