About me
Hi! I am a recently graduated textile designer specialising in print at DJCAD, Dundee University. Drawing is central to my work. Using a wide range of media allows me to really capture a source's essence. I develop my drawings through screen printing and photoshop to create more commercial designs. I love to see how far I can push my work, as this results in a diverse range of designs. I am looking for design opportunities and internships, as I see myself going into interiors and accessories in the future!
Projects
  • Graduate Portfolio
    Graduate PortfolioMy final year project explores the East Neuk of Fife’s heritage; communicating it’s sense of community and the changes its fishing industry has seen. From this I have created three collections of designs intended for cafe interiors.
  • RSA Make Fashion Circular brief
    RSA Make Fashion Circular briefThis brief challenged me to propose a design applying circular design principles to innovate everyday clothing items. Problem When we buy clothes not much is said on the label about the conditions it was made in or how far it travelled to get here. Many people are happy that this process is kept out of sight and out of mind. Transparency is of most importance in a circular economy, as it ensures we know exactly how our clothes were made and the impact they had on the earth. Process T-shirt
