Printed Textile Designer Womenswear Print designer and Textiles in Practice graduate from Manchester School of Art. I create my designs from my own hand painted artwork which is then digitally manipulated to create a contemporary look. I enjoy creating artworks for a wide range of contexts and working collaboratively on new ideas and projects. Within my work, I enjoy combining my interests in historical art, history and the various patterns and forms found in nature. I also love working with colour and creating exciting colourways for my designs.Locked Pro Plan feature
