Hidden Creatives: Adele Fitzgerald
Hidden Creatives is a portrait exhibition which explores the creative diversity in the Blackhorse Lane Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ) (Link to CEZ page). For this project photographer, Andy Donohoe was tasked with exploring the different corners of the district to find creatives which demonstrated the broad mix of practices and technical backgrounds. The images have been printed in large format and have been exhibited throughout the CEZ in public places.

I later went on to study Textiles in Practice at the Manchester School of Art and initially specialised in Embroidery. It was only until mid-way through my second year that my love for print and pattern grew and I haven't looked back since
