Hello! I am a textile designer based in the west of Scotland specialising in print who graduated in Design for Textiles at Heriot Watt University. I take my love for colour, painting and collaging and create bold, yet versatile surface pattern designs.
Inspired by my surroundings, culture, and other creative disciplines, I aim to challenge the possibilities that can be achieved through traditional screen-printing techniques.
