I decided I wanted to create patterns from an early age, I remember wanting to design wallpaper, after being attracted to the bold graphic cat wallpaper my mum chose for my bedroom.
I studied textiles at the University of Leeds, then worked in-house for various greeting cards companies for 10 years across design, artworking, managing and training. I now work freelance on surface pattern and illustration, with my big loves being working on florals and sweet treats! I have been lucky enough to work with brands such as Anthropologie, Hallmark, WHSmith, American Greetings, and Papyrus.
I would describe my artwork as graphic, bold, with plenty of pattern. I embrace “happy accidents” as this often gives individuality and unpredictability to the work.
In my spare time, I love finding new creative classes and events, I recently enrolled on a jewellery workshop and bread making course.
I’d love to hear from you to discuss potential collaborations.
