I am a London based freelance Surface Pattern Designer and Illustrator, with a huge love for anything hand made and a crazy cat lady!

I graduated in 2009 with a BA Hons in Illustration from the University of the West of England. After creating editorial and custom illustrations for a number of years, found I was getting obsessed with drawing collections and creating patterns.

In 2012 I started an internship with modern British designer Ella Doran and that’s where my passion for patterns really started! I loved the design process that went into designing patterns and the variety of products that Ella was creating, it was a really inspiring time!

After that I took some time off to travel and explore new places and get inspired!
After 6 months travelling I landed in Melbourne and it was my home for two years and loved it! I have now moved back home to London.

I love to work in lots of different ways but my favorite is just with a paint bush or dip pen and ink. I love the texture that ink gives and would always opt for a pencil or paint brush rather then a computer! I hand draw all my patterns or illustrations first, getting inspired by what I see around me!


My style is eclectic and a lot of inspiration comes from travelling, being emerged in different cultures and seeing different drawing, textile and printing techniques from around the world! My favorite place to visit was India!

Whether it is working with textiles or wallpapers my work is always hand drawn and each piece is unique.


I have worked on a lot of different projects from Baby Sleeping Bags with The Gro Company (Out A/W 2015) to more traditional wallpapers for The Wall Sticker Company (Out Now!). Being an enthusiastic interiors geek, my favorite projects are always anything to do with home wears. Seeing one of my products or designs being used and loved in a home is always an amazing feeling!
