My Story (well, a little bit of it)
I create all of my pieces by drawing into the computer using a Wacom smart pen and tablet. I am inspired by Japanese botanical block prints and 17/18th century French textiles. I play with colour and composition until I’m happy - and this can take many, many days. I'm fascinated by folklore, forgery and social history and always aim to have hidden treats and a sparkle of romance within my creative work.
In 2018 I won the #libertyopencall competition - held by Liberty London. They printed my work on limited edition Tana Lawn Cotton and Silk Satin fabric. My work has been featured in Elle Decoration, The Times, LivingETC, Stylist, Notebook, Metro, The Lady - You may have also seen my work on C4's George Clarke's 'Old House to New Home'. Brighton & Hove Museums hold a book of my MA work in their archives.
Any special clients?
Harrods, Liberty, Royal Botanical Gardens Kew, Tanqueray, Allegra McEvedy - and many more...
Why should I buy your work?
Well - not only are they filled with utter joy but all of these pieces have been designed, made and packaged with real consideration. They support a very passionate, independent British creative (a one woman band at present) and have been created to a very high standard. In all cases the best effort has been made to provide products (and their packaging) that are natural and have as little negative environmental impact on the world as possible.
What is your favourite colour?
I do like greens - the darks and the mints, and pink, a lovely pale pink - can you tell?
If you were on Mastermind (other than design) what would be your specialist subject?
Period Dramas from the 1980's onwards. They often provide the soundtrack to my work - especially Merchant Ivory productions.
