I am an experienced freelance textile designer, I specialise in creating modern surface pattern design with an illustrative feel. My mediums are Illustrator and Photoshop using my hand-drawn sketches/illustrations.

"My work is inspired by being in the Cotswolds, going for long walks, and growing my own fruit and veg, and by my love of vintage fabrics. In my work I seek to evoke these simple pleasures with style and playfulness."

Experience includes;

I was taught design and silk-screen printing at Winchester School of Art. I draw to relax, and I now screen-print for my small business; Beetroot Press, a planet-kind range of home and giftware.

Following on from university, my main design experience comes from working for 7 years at BHS Home.

I enjoy designing from my own drawings and sketches, working up designs into Illustrator and Photoshop. I also love working with vintage swatches, creating useable files for new palettes and manufacturing.

I have a wide breath of experience in designing for different areas including Homeware (both hard and soft goods), Kids fashion and home, gifts, packaging and paper goods. I love the different design areas and give me the freedom to work on interesting projects.

An example of of items I enjoy designing are, kids bedding, older girls prints, dining-ware, mugs and home textiles. I also welcome new projects and am always interested in learning new disciplines.

Other knowledge areas I can help you with are; creating bedding repeats for rotary printing, layered/grouped design files, working to Pantone colour, and creating mood boards and compiling trend research.

I've worked for a number of well known companies, such as The Little White Company, MADE.com, Kew Gardens, BHS and Debenhams. I also work for a studio part-time through where I've sold designs to Paperchase, M&S, among other european and American companies.
