My pylon story...........

Since my blog is quite new, I thought the next best thing to do is to backtrack a little to update and enlighten you all with what I’ve been up to since graduating. I’ll start with my pylon story…. Well firstly there was New Designers, which was an amazing experience. I got some great feedback, sold some work and really enjoyed myself. The perfect end to my degree and brillant start to my new career..... Here we are- my textile gal-pal Elspeth and I showing our masterpieces at ND 08

....and here's me ....
Following that, I was selected to exhibit at Talentzone which is part of - TENT LONDON -“the most comprehensive and diverse design exhibition of the year during the London Design Festival”- now that was an experience. I felt so honoured to have been selected to exhibit amongst such a inspiring array of designers, the exposure was fantastic and it really gave me a big push in the right direction; a great career starter.
And here's a couple of pics from the stand......

I felt honoured just being selected to exhibit in the show but more amazingly Detank TV awarded me with “Best of Tent” . I was gobsmacked.....


and here's me live on air, spectators n'all.......I was so nervous but surprisingly it went ok.....

My work was also featured on Dezeen, Embroidery Magazine, Architects Journal. I know it's late but a big thanks to everyone who came to see me at the show.

During October my work was exhibited at The Butetown History and Arts Centre, Cardiff for the Best of Welsh Graduates showcase. My work was featured in the Western Mail during the show.

In November, my pins and thread then headed to Lincoln for the Class of ‘08 exhibition at The HUB, Sleaford. A diverse range of work was on show.....very exciting

and here's a couple of snaps from the show.....

And that's that.....my pylon story so far
