My love of design and creativity comes from growing up in a family of talented designers and being surrounded by beautiful textiles and creative conceptual artwork all my life.
After graduating from Art School in London I specialised in high-end packaging design for over 15 years working for clients such as Crabtree & Evelyn, Fortnum & Mason’s and Marks & Spencers.
During this time I developed a love for colour, typography, illustration and detailed artwork which I have now put to use with my new canvas design venture. My design background comes through in the way that I work, as I plan and multilayer each piece with detail.
Taking a break from design, I spent an inspiring year travelling through Asia with my husband and after a 3 year stint freelancing and guest lecturing in Melbourne at RMIT we returned home to the ‘alternative arty’ City of Brighton for the arrival of our twin boys. Then, ready for our next adventure, we moved to vibrant Shanghai, followed by Hong Kong, and now we are based in Singapore. My heart belongs to Asia and I continue to be inspired by the wonderful energy and colour that I see around me, both at home and on my travels through the region.
My designs are created using a mixture of my own photography, illustration and patterns, vintage imagery, and photographs of textiles that I have collected over the years.
