About me

A Loughborough University Textiles: Innovation and Design graduate specialising in printed textiles. My design work stems from Scandinavian references, allowing the basis of my design work to be simplistic in its approach. This line of enquiry allows me to focus primarily on shape, form and colour. Alongside these interests, I am passionate about materials and have experimented with techniques including weave, jacquard and laser cutting. Their position within my projects infuse my printed designs with tactile qualities. I enjoy working with a mix of lustrous silks, natural wools and functional materials including neoprene and denim, both of which provoke sensual characteristics within my work.
