Getting Started

It's such a human condition, whether you're a great track star or a great knitting person or you paint watercolors - someone knows who you are. -Tony Curtis

Fortunately for the late Tony, one more person knows who he is after I googled his name this morning. Anyways, I thought it was time for me to create a blog to showcase my creations, inspirations, and revelations. 'A great knitting person' is what I aspire this 'someone' to know me as, and I hope that by making this blog a few more 'someone's' will also know who I am. Who knows, they might even like my art.

I am currently a 22 year old final year student at the University of Ulster, Belfast, Northern Ireland. By this summer, I will have my degree in 'BA (Hons) Textile Art, Design and Fashion,' so now is crunch time to work really ruddy hard, make use of all of the university's expensive equipment, the tutor's feedback, and create pieces which reflect who I am as an artist. 

My work is primarily fine art, which is rather bias to art of knitting. What could be more exciting than turning a long, boring piece of anything into a knitted, looped together piece of something, eh? I began making large scale knitted pieces in yarn, yet have recently been focusing on making smaller more detailed work using different materials, such as wire.

Hope that you enjoy reading this blog, and thank you for visiting. I know I'm a little bit unfashionably late to the artist's blogging party but I've brought some wine, and photographs!
