I was born in Cornwall and have been drawn towards Art and creative subjects ever since attending primary school. I naturally pursued this passion through my secondary school years in the southwest,and it wasn't until I attended Truro College that I became drawn toward the design elements. This led me to study interior design at the university of North London. Whilst studying my degree course I achieved a greater understanding of the drawn line, position and perspective.
