About me

I am an independent studio practitioner with a passion for hand-printed textiles for interiors. Bold, colourful hand-printed textiles. They are all capturing and expressing the shapes, textures and details from nature in my environment. Drawing, painting, marking making, black and white merging into colour - Collaging, mixing papers, building shapes, overprinting rich layered compositions. My designs are multi-purpose and flexible, with the potential to be applied in a variety of contexts. They are one-off individual, exciting additions to the interior space - a focal point in a room, whether on the wall, on the seating or on the floor.
