I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 1999 in Graphic Design and have been working in the fashion industry for the last 13 years. I am a freelance graphic textile print designer based in Richmond on the outskirts of London. I specialize in womenswear, childrenswear and homeware designing prints, graphics, repeats, embellishments, embroidery and t shirt placements. I have knowledge of digital and screen printing and can prepare artwork ready to send to manufacturers. For the last 10 years I have been designing for UK high street retailers, suppliers, textile houses and agents. My designs have been sold to the French, Swedish, Turkish, Korean and Asian markets and a wide range of established UK and US high street retailers.
I am interested in many aspects of design and I'm always keen to learn, over the years I have taken courses in many areas such as;
Tapestry, Hand and Machine Embroidery, Screen Printing, Batik, Accessories/ Textile Design, Pattern Cutting, Advanced Photoshop & Illustrator, Photography, Life Drawing, Oil Painting, Experiment Jewellery Making, Metal Craft, Leather Handbag Making, Fashion & Beauty Make Up Techniques and Fashion Management.
I enjoy the whole design process from researching to creating the end design and like to work in a range of different mediums such as hand drawing, embroidery, painting, photography and CAD.
