About me
A specialist in surface pattern and textiles design I am looking to join a fruitful design led environment where I can impart my creativity, enthusiasm and design values. I have an awareness of both colour and form, which I hope to exercise productively and explore on a daily basis. Creatively, I work a lot in hand drawing and painting as an instant production of any repeat or colour way ideas I have. With this I am able to benefit from having a large reference of my own designs both starting motifs and full repeat samples to draw upon. As well as personal design references I am also an admirer and collector of many past printed visual references. Vintage woven textiles pieces and unique vintage jewellery shapes with wild enamel paint finishes – all which I refer to more often than not to when thinking about any new projects. This weakness for all that is visual from the early to mid twentieth century, does fuel most projects I embark on though I am excited by addressing any audience and seeing how this develops my work. I am currently Studio Assistant for a small hands-on wallpaper studio located in Bermondsey, where each project is unique to each client. In this role I focus a lot on post-production – hand-painting, hand-applying glue for foiling, meticulous applying embellishments and fitting LED technology, as the wallpapers are initially digitally printed. Before this I came direct from an intense period of freelancing and interning which has seen me work with ‘Designers Guild’ in both the Creative and Visual Merchandising departments, fashion accessories brand ‘Skinny Dip’, within fast moving commercial fashion textiles studio ‘Pattern Ltd’ and for organic and tradition lead design studio ‘House of Gharats’ – during my time at ‘House of Gharats’ I illustrating a self-lead collection of silk scarves. Soon to come! I'm currently working on a range of homewares, mainly concentrating on printed kitchenwares - so watch this space huh!
