My specialism is:
My technical training is in textiles, and I love it, but I’ve been a stationery addict since I was a kid so designing for that area gives me a massive kick.
I am inspired by:
Watercolours and lines…I love the jumpstart the whole don’t-take-your-pen-off-the-paper-and-see-what-happens thing gives you. The unexpected marks and textures that watercolours can give appeal to my love of seeing the hand in something, that there’s been human intervention there – but I equally love finding pattern in that mild chaos.
I grew up by the coast so anything to do with the ocean, water, weird blobby lifeforms, flows and ebbs, whirlpools…all that jazz really excites my senses.
When I am not designing, you can find me:
Reading, usually, in a comfy chair, in the sun, with Eric The Superkitty curled up in my shadow. Or singing, with the ridiculously talented barbershop chorus that I’m very privileged to perform with.
