About me

I am a textile print and fashion designer with 2+ years experience in design studios and bespoke freelance work. My upbringing across many cities including Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney has greatly influenced my work and developed my appreciation for print, culture, design and the arts. These are all points I draw upon for inspiration across my work. I have a strong passion for colour and textiles; specifically targeted towards children’s wear and women's wear, along with my experience and a satiable appetite to keep learning, honing and developing my skill set; which is vital to surviving in such a fast-paced industry. I am an organised, positive and self-motivated person and a creative at heart. With strong attention to detail and a drive to ensure deadlines are met with quality and precision. I enjoy working in a team and value the support and diverse ideas that comes with doing so.
