About Me

I have just graduated from Leeds College of Art with a BA (hons) in Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design. Drawing is a great passion of mine and I use this as the base of my designing to create innovative fashion fabrics. I combine hand painted motifs with geometric patterns in bold colour palettes appropriate for garments or accessories.

My designs are created within Illustrator and Photoshop in which I layer up different motifs to create designs with depth and variety. My designs are bold with the incorporation of geometrics and bright colour schemes, yet they still maintain a femininity created within the delicacy of painting and the movement within the brushstrokes of my painted motifs.

My designs are bright and bold and my style is versitile, and although I have a love for drawing and painting organic flowers and patterns of nature I still have a love for geometric patterns. I design with a visualised outcome for fashion fabrics but I feel my style can be adapted to interior furnishings.
