I'm a complete loudmouth who is obsessed with storytelling and creating narratives for rambunctious characters that are inspired by my own thoughts, feelings and experiences.
I'm an aspiring digital fashion designer who is always excited to create my own works that are juxtapositions of bright, obnoxious over the top aesthetics, with dark gothic political undertones. which I draw from using my own personal interests, morals and experiences from growing up in lower-class England. That being either within the physical world or my own digital universe.
My inspiration for my collection grew from my vulnerability and feelings of consumption and envy. That I could not escape while I was growing up. And how the four walls of my childhood room, shared by three little girls made me angry about my situation in life. while the four walls I only occasionally was allowed to enter in my grandparent's house, just fuelled this puppet's envy and anger from being met by the extremely expensive old English textiles, art and upholstery that teased and mocked me.
These rooms bullied my emotions and I would find comfort in movies, cartoons and shows such as Don't hug me I'm Scared. And the muppets to cheer myself up. I loved how all of the characters in Dhmis are puppets themselves, trapped within their own four walls - just as sickeningly colourful as my grandads healivy textiled rooms. I wanted to create a gang of puppets based on how I would see myself if I was one of these characters escaping what these rooms eventually made me.
