‘My designs are versatile, mainly inspired by vintage finds and flea markets, but I also create bright geometric patterns and characters. I have an eye for detail and travel to antique fairs, art markets and trade shows frequently to gain inspiration and for trend forecasting.

I am very passionate about design. Having been interested in art and design from a very early age, I have always visited galleries and museums, developing a fascination for them. I have participated in many competitions and exhibitions throughout my university and college degrees, including the wallpaper history society, artist book fairs, and trade fairs such as Indigo Fashion Trade fair. I have also volunteered at the Manchester Antique Textiles Fair, with the textiles society. I have stalls and exhibitions at various art and craft fairs, showcasing my illustrations and jewellery design. I mainly work with surface pattern and repeat prints, but am currently designing a range of graphics for invites and stationery.’
