About

Living life my way.

I make cushions, jewellery, bags and wallets using second hand materials. I also like to sketch and sell prints of my work.

I’ve been creative for as long as I can remember. I chose to do mostly art subjects throughout high school – painting, design, photography, graphics. I’ve just always loved making stuff!

I’m really enjoying working with leather at the moment. I get all my leather from an upholstery company and a fabric shop that sells off-cuts destined for the bin! I’m completely self taught and figure things out through trial and error but it’s exciting to see how many different uses I can come up with.

People doing what they love for a living is so inspiring to me. As the years pass more and more of my friends are ditching their day jobs and making their passion their career. I'M A BIG BELIEVER IN CHASING YOUR DREAMS AND NOT JUST DOING WHAT IS EXPECTED. I've been working fulltime from home for 2 years now.

It’s all about recycling and reusing. It’s amazing what a little bit of love can do, a touch of paint or an added piece of fabric. So many things are just tossed away without any thought. Its fun working with materials in a different way to what they were created for, and seeing peoples reactions to that :)

I've just started working on a brother brand called 'Harley' which focusses on accessories for men. etsy.com.shop/harleymakes
