About

Welcome and thank you for stopping by. I am a British printed textile designer and illustrator, currently based in Wellington, New Zealand.

After graduating with a first class degree in printed textiles and an MA in fashion and textiles from Nottingham Trent University, I began working as a print designer.

I love drawing, colour, collage and mark making and enjoy working on a variety of themes ranging from cute children’s characters to large abstract landscapes.

I have sold my illustrative, bricolage pieces to a variety of clients including: Marc Jacobs, Disney, Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria’s Secret, Whistles, French Connection, Gap, Calvin Klein, Reebok, Nautica, Hallmark, Tate modern, Innermost, Carlton cards and Think Pink, with end applications including apparel, cards, footwear, bedding, accessories and furniture. My work was also featured in the first edition of Print & Pattern, by Bowie Style.

When I’m not working, I enjoy exploring the dramatic south coast of Wellington with my two girls, Darcy and Posy, and spending cosy evenings at home drinking tea with my husband.

If you would like to know more about me, my work or how we can work together, please contact me.
