About me

I am a Printed Textiles Designer from the North East of England, residing in London. In June 2017, I graduated from Loughborough University and obtained a BA (Hons) Degree in Textiles: Innovation and Design with 1st class honours. I completed a placement year between my second and third years at University, where I worked and gained experience within the creative industry. My placements included: Silken Favours, Amanda Kelly Design Studio and Whiston and Wright ltd. I specialised in Printed Textiles in my second year at university, and I am passionate about designing for interior textiles as well as fashion. This online portfolio showcases a range of my projects, including my final degree interior project, for which I was selected to exhibit at New Designers in 2017. Inspiration for many of my projects comes from historic artefacts and architecture. I’m particularly passionate about sculpture and classic artwork pieces and I regularly Frequent museums, including the British Museum, V & A, National Gallery, Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Sir John Soanes Museum, Wallace Collection, Grant Museum, Royal Academy, Baltic Museum in Newcastle and MIMA in Middlesbrough, for first hand imagery and inspiration.
