Throughout school free time I’d be found with knitting needles in hand. I’d collage in endless journals, I taught myself to crochet and explored any new craft techniques I could.

I went on to study Art and Design at college where I developed my techniques and felt the pull towards textile design.

In my final year at University I delved back into collage – I’d transform my collages and digitally create a modern, geometric, colourful design.

 By balancing colour and simplifying within my patterns a seamless clean design emerges without overpowering.

My influences are Japanese ephemera and washi tape.
