My art work is striking and unique, occasionally naive, but with a sophisticated edge. My love of 1950s design has had an impact on my use of colour and a passion for travel comes through in many of my designs. The training I received in surface pattern saw me develop my skills in repeat pattern making which has allowed my work to be transferred to products such as quilting fabrics, wallpaper and gift wrap.
I am available to work on a freelance basis, and love collaborating with companies on exciting new product ranges and designs. I can create artwork to tight deadlines for areas such as editorial or dedicate time to more labour intensive licensing projects. My surface pattern training means I am proficient at making repeat patterns as well as placement prints.
My designs begin as black pen drawings on paper before being scanned and digitally enhanced using Adobe Illustrator. All elements are drawn separately so layouts can easily be amended and scale changed without loss of quality.
Since my first licensing collaboration with P&B Textiles in 2011, I have worked with companies from around the world, creating artwork for use on anything from salad bowls to light projector imagery.

My Instagram account gives a good insight into my latest work. I love drawing architecture/maps and my coastal upbringing has often influenced my creative output.
