a bit about me...

I am a British artist and designer who loves pattern in all its forms

having grown up in the English countryside, and travelled and worked all over the world, I take endless inspiration from my past and present surroundings

my prints and patterns are rooted in classical design principles and imbued with a fresh, contemporary aesthetic. Whether subtle and feminine or bright and bold, colour is a fundamental component of my style. I love to draw and paint, and to create gorgeous patterns and illustrations that are uplifting and irresistible!

I very much enjoy collaborating with clients to make fabulous products, and I would be delighted to hear from you if you are interested in licensing or buying any of my artwork, discussing your project or viewing the designs in my private gallery
