I am a surface pattern designer and print maker, and design for interior, accessories, gift items and stationery. I studied Surface Design at London College of Communication (University of the Arts London). I work from my home studio as a designer maker, selling my work online and at various craft fairs.
My work is a mixture of hard and soft, frequently very illustrative and linear, occasionally organic and textural. I create delicate autographic drawings, often developed digitally to create repeat pattern. I specialise in screen printing but enjoy experimenting with many different techniques and materials.
Much of my work is a reflection of my childhood memories and the feelings of adventure and freedom these evoke. I draw inspiration from the world around me, from the cultural diversity of nearby London, to the contrasting character of my seaside home town, with its tidal landscapes and the beautiful fields and woodlands of the Essex countryside.
