About

Previously trained in classic Fine Arts, Animation and Icon painting (an ancient technique Egg Tempera) I graduated in UK in Printed Textile Design with First Class.
I glean my images from the natural world and I draw with pencil, watercolour, ink and egg tempera to create the artwork for my textiles. The designs exclusively consist of my own original art work and have a narrative quality, hinting at fairy tales and fables behind the imagery.
Through CAD experiments I have developed techniques to create a pioneering design construction. The processes are unique and create innovative images.
My designs are suitable for all levels in the market from designer labels to high street brands for Womenswear, Menswear and Home.
