About me

I am an Irish designer and maker. I have an imagination, an excitement over creative things, a love of colour. As a childrenswear designer I research trends, design prints, design garments, compile ranges and seasonal collections. I love a project that works the whole way through from concept to completion. I am drawn toward tactility, using my hands, taking a raw material and turning it into something beautiful. As a maker work with analogue processes. I create drawings, collages, patterns, printed fabrics, knitted designs and ceramics. I love the process of making and I love the nature of the handmade
