As a graduate of Printed textiles and Surface pattern design, my interests lie with exploring new techniques to develop into contemporary patterns. With a vast range of interests comes the desire to always be challenging new ideas and design subjects. This has been enhanced by working within a print studio, attaining the skills to create commercial designs suitable for the fashion industry. Throughout my degree my drawing styles have developed with focus on graphic and textural outcomes. My graduate, gender-neutral collection pushes these techniques with a contrast of illustrative graphic florals and geometric, mark-making textures.Locked Pro Plan feature

Completing a degree in Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern design, has led to overcoming constant challenges through diverse briefs and design specifications. Throughout, my interests have grown in applying new surface techniques, particularly textural, and experimenting further in Photoshop. I’ve grown as a designer to develop my technical skills, acquired from work placements, confidently creating repeat tiles and accurately producing designs suitable for the fashion market. Embracing numerous workshops has widened my skillset, particularly developing key drawing styles and has focussed my interests on the photographic and textural outcomes.
During an Art and Design foundation I attained a variety of skills in all areas, techniques such as laser cutting, 3D construction, graphic design, fine art, life drawing, mixed media design, screen printing and CAD. Once specialising in Fashion&Textiles I focussed my skills on printing techniques, fashion visualisations, pattern cutting and garment construction.
