Having studied Fashion and Textile Design, I find printed textiles particularly appealing, loving the opportunity to play with different repeats and colour. All my designs take inspiration from the natural world, in colours that are both harmonious and calming. Each piece has idiosyncratic marks and variations that are intended and are in contrast to commercially printed textiles that can appear flat and unvaried. It is important to me that the resulting designs are appealing visually but also have a practical purpose, therefore I enjoy making them into decorative lampshades, cushions and scarves.
