The Raggy Rat, I’m a keen up-cycler, crafter and painter, I enjoy making all kinds of art work. Collage is something I particularly enjoy at the moment.

I make textile pieces, from full sized costumes to toys that fit in the hand. My work has a gentle, almost retro feel, especially as I use old fabrics, salvage off-cuts and dabble in button-jointing.

I love putting wool-cloth into my washing machine on hot, pondering the contents of my button tin, and looking at colour and texture when thinking of a new project.

My Art Degree is from Edinburgh College of Art.
