About me
My practice lies within the specialism of print design for an interiors purpose. My passion revolves around the context of developing surface pattern designs for the home environment. As a designer my work is influenced by my constant attraction and fascination to the natural world, which I explore and develop concepts in different approaches to inform my direction of work. My practice involves a large drawing and painting based approach to working that is diverse in style, exploring form, colour, composition and also illustration. I have recently completed my final year at Manchester Metropolitan University and now keen to gain valuable experience within the textiles industry to broaden and develop my skills.
