"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."

I am a textile designer/maker who specialises in creating motifs and repeat patterns from hand drawn illustrations and collages. My most recent work is based on my travelling experiences inter-railing around Europe in the summer of 2009 and a recent trip back to Amsterdam. 

For the majority of my prints and motifs, I start with a hand drawn illustration. I have a specific drawing style using fine liners, which makes my drawings very easy to manipulate on the computer. I also enjoy using collage within my work, which I then draw on top of, creating images with interesting and exciting backgrounds. I use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to manipulate my drawings, creating repeated patterns and one off motifs. These designs can then be used in a variety of outcomes

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work :)
I will keep this blog updated with my newest collections.
