Textiles in Practice

I specialise in Print Design as I have a huge passion for design and an eye for pattern. I am an incredibly driven artist and designer; my work is very playful and organic. I am often inspired by my natural surroundings, catwalks and high street fashion which I then incorporate into my individual style. I am enthusiastic about the concept of layering drawings.

My final collection ‘Fresh Traditional’ includes original drawings, digitally printed wallpapers and digitally printed fabrics for cushions and curtains. The collection is inspired by botanical drawings from Manchester Metropolitan Library Archive and my own photographs of florals.

After completing four placements (including one at Karolina York in Sydney, Australia where I spent 3 months) my aspirations are to become a textile designer for womenswear or interiors. Throughout these placements I have sold designs to many brands one of them being Marks & Spencer’s.
