About me

A recent 1st class Printed Textile Design student from Plymouth College of Art. Aspiring to work within the creative industry. Since discovering print design as a medium for using my illustrations to create patterns, I have been devoted to exploring it further. I have developed a love for mixing and playing with colour inspired by trends and everything around me. I am excited by both fashion and Interior design and the ever changing approach they require. With an illustrative and quirky style, I design with inspiration from the beauty of nature and the people around me. My work always stems from original hand drawing and painting which are processes I am drawn to the most.
