About me

I started my career within the arts by doing a few short courses in Screen printing. Since then I have interned within a few companies including Christopher Farr Cloth, where I helped set up their exhibition 'Form Through Colour' at Somerset House in 2004. The past three years I have worked for Insley and Nash who were a bespoke textile screen printing company. Through Insley and Nash I have printed for a range of clients including Damien Hirst, BBC, and fashion designer Hussein Chalayan. I have an excellent eye for detail and fully proficient on Microsoft and Photoshop. I'm a friendly, organised, reliable individual who is looking for a new challenge.
