About me

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.
