Born in Manchester, England, I studied Surface Pattern Design at Staffordshire University. After graduating, I worked in the home textile and furnishing market, designing patterns and styling ranges for UK retailers and international clients. In 2010 I set up my own freelance studio and began to undertake projects for a range of clients in the interior, stationery and giftware markets. My portfolio is highly decorative with a fun and quirky style. I enjoy drawing simple but graphic motifs which incorporate areas of texture and detail.
