"I was always a very creative child, I flitted from one craft project to the next from macrame, tie dye, origami, batik, knitting, sewing, papercraft . My favourite book was the ‘St Michaels book of handicrafts’ I still feel even now I am in a process of finding my next ‘passion’ in the creative process. As I went in to secondary school I realised it was something I could actually do as a job and was really focused on that from then on." - The Black Rabbit.
