New Generation Gallery 2018

‘Make Do’ is my collection inspired by the work of my great-grandparents, where tailoring and glove making come together in an epic love story where resourcefulness and creativity were a way of life. The materials used were cottons and leatherette to cross-reference materials used by the tailor and the glove maker. My drawings are of things I see beauty in, such as roses, women, and Fashion.
